Fusion Challenge - Coral Flowers

Hi blog friends ~ It's time for a new challenge at Fusion and this time our theme is 'Coral Flowers'. For this challenge, I decided to go with the Fusion by combining the sketch with a few elements from the inspiration photo:


These beautiful flowers and leaves are from Altenew and the stripes are from an old SSS background stamp. I used emboss resist for the blooms with white EP and MFT 's Peach Bellini ink. For the stripes, I used Coral Crush to add contrast to the design.   

I hope you'll stop by the Fusion Challenge Blog to see the lovely cards my teamies created for your inspiration, and that you'll play along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by,






Supplies
Stamps: Altenew - Happy Heart; MFT - More Essential Sentiments; SSS Background Stripes
Dies: Altenew - Happy Heart; Lil' Inkers - Stitched Scalloped Border (retired); MFT - Slanted Sentiments
Ink: Versamark; Versafine Onyx Black; MFT - Peach Bellini, Coral Crush, Spearmint
