CAS(E) This Sketch 370 Meets Fusion

Thursday, January 10, 2019

It's a march of the butterflies for my card today!  I'm combining the latest challenges from CAS(E) This Sketch and Fusion.

That sketch threw me for a loop initially until I realized that adding some chevron shapes with embossing paste and a stencil would be a great way to take care of those angled layers.  The subtle background of the embossing paste would be a nice way to show off some butterflies a-la the Fusion inspiration.  So I sponged some ink onto cardstock then cut the base of the butterflies.  The outlined top of the butterflies were die cut with some shimmery vellum.  To add to my shimmery theme I put on a few pearl accents too.

This is our 5th anniversary challenge at Fusion and in keeping with tradition all of the design team have invited a guest designer.  I invited Lisa Elton to join us.  I have long admired Lisa's fearless knack for combining eclectic patterned papers with stamped images with a certain vintage appeal.  Her cards often call to my mind a simpler time and a sweet innocence.  I'm thrilled that she's joining us at Fusion!

Thanks for stopping by!
