That's right! If you missed the news in my earlier post, I'm an official design team member for Fusion! Woooooohooo! I always loved playing in their challenges and now I get to BE a part of their challenges. *insert happy dance here*
And just check out this beeeeauuuuuuutiful inspiration image and sketch.
Fusion is one of those awesome challenges that lets YOU be your own boss. We don't trap you into a corner here - Pick either the sketch or the image or both. We don't care!
I loved all those leaves smattered all over that cake, so that's where my mind went right away.
I used a Spellbinders die to cut a ton (and I really do mean 2,000 pounds or at least that's what it felt like as I was making all of them) of paper leaves.
After I cut them, I added color by spraying some Peeled Paint Distress Spray Stain onto my mat and dipping the flowers. (This is why I can't have nice fingernails.)
After that, I added some shimmer to the leaves by sccchhhmearing some Inka-Gold onto them. Isn't that sparkle fantastic?!
I stamped a sympathy sentiment, used some patterned paper and some Prima flowers and put it all together. Love how this turned out, even if it is for a sad occasion.
I hope you'll come join us at Fusion for my very first challenge! Make sure to pop over and see what the rest of the design team made!
