Fusion - Spray Mists and Crepe Paper


Hi folks, welcome to another fun Fusion Challenge! I am so in love with the color palette for this challenge that I didn't even think about using the sketch this time.


I unrolled some white crepe paper and started spraying Heidi Swapp Color Shine Mists in the same order as the photo.



After making running stitches down the center, I gathered the crepe paper and adhered it to the card base. There was way too much empty white space to the left of the sentiment so I filled it with some white stars (fills it, but doesn't compete with the crepe paper).



The sentiment is a MFT Die-namics Accent It die. Vintage sequins are added to the ruffled crepe paper, and the inside is sprayed with more of the Heidi Swapp Color Shine over a Heidi Swapp stencil. 

This is a belated birthday card for the best neighbor you could ever ask for! We share a deep passion for Green Day, patterned paper, and crafts; she's always got the best advice on people issues; and she is just the sweetest, most positive, understanding friend ever. So lucky to have her in my life : )


Here's a picture of us at a Glass Blowing class a couple months ago (yep, she's THAT cool!)
 
Here are some fabulous cards by our design team!


WinnersWill be chosen by all of our teammates in two weeks. We each will choose one favorite. The winners will be announced at 4 am (PST) in two weeks!


Thanks for looking!
