Fusion #7

Fusion #7's inspiration: to choose the photo, the sketch, or fuse both.

I love playing with this challenge, and I love to fuse the 2 inspirations.
One of my first stamps was this large woodblock from Stampington
called 'Papillion'.

I've been playing with making my own bg papers, this wood one from a tutorial Melissa Phillips 
did last week on Make It Monday.
 It's a 3-D paint that has iridescence, so that set the stage for my dress form.
PTI cardstocks,
Oval: Lil Inkers
Sentiment 'Easter' from Cheery Lynn.
Dyed burlap strip
Wink of Stella

The spotted background paper is the byproduct of a PTI notebook page die cut.

A P.S. to this post, is a photo of the card with some purple dyed twine.
I removed it because it seemed just too much.
Ever do that?
I seem to love possibilities, until I do them, and then think, 'it's over done'.
It's a learning process, after all!


  1. So pretty nancy!! I love the glitter in the outfit!

  2. My goodness - I just had to come see this wonderful stamp when I saw your card at Fusion Nancy! Should have known it was from Stampington - so unusual and ornate - love all the iridescence in the colors - and your wonderful woodgrain panel!

  3. Love the depth in these photos! So exciting. Such a fun, whimsical fairy Easter card. Colors are gypsy-like and rich. Full of texture and lovely layers.

  5. ooh la la - this is so elegant! arty! and gorgeous colours! I love the background too!

  6. Do it all the time! I like both ways. Beautiful! I think you won another challenge as well. Congrats!

  7. Just love this card. Loads of hard work and great techniques. Yes do that all the time...What's in your head and then you try it out, not so sure x Love the card without the twine I think but hey they are both gorgeous. Beverley x
