Fusion 2nd Year Celebration Guest Design

IMG_9435


Excited to share with you today that I am celebrating over at the Fusion Card Challenge for their 2nd Year Celebration! I was thrilled when Fusion Design Team Member Katie Brooks asked me to be her guest for the fun.




I played along with both the challenge photo and the sketch. I started by adhering a piece of pink chevron paper to the top of the card base. Then I stamped the sentiment on a zig zag stitched oval die cut which I adhered with foam tape. The butterfly die cut was watercoloured with Gansai watercolours and finally I finished it off with a few clear sequins.
