Fusion Card Challenge - 5th Anniversary Post!

Hi there, blog friends! It's our 5th Anniversary at the Fusion Card Challenge, and we are celebrating by asking a guest to join us! It will probably be no surprise to you that I've chosen Michele Ferguson to be my guest and she has accepted :) Be sure to check out her blog...she has created a gorgeous card!
I decided to go with the inspiration photo this time...


I started by softly sponging Tumbled Glass ink on the background, then I created the ombre effect with my inks on the butterflies. To jazz it up a bit, I added gold foil to the borders, Shimmer Spray to the butterflies, and clear EP on the sentiment for shine...and that was it!

Don't forget the best thing about the Fusion Card Challenge is that you can choose between the sketch and the inspiration photo, or both! My teammates and their guests have created some amazing cards to inspire you, so feel free to stop by the challenge blog and play along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by,






Supplies:
Stamps & Dies: PTI - Life is Beautiful
Ink: Tim Holtz - Tumbled Glass; Versafine - Onyx Black; PTI - Bright Buttercup, Harvest Gold, Lemon Tart, Hibiscus Burst, Lovely Lady, Sweet Blush, Tropical Teal, Hawaiin Shores, Aqua Mist
Misc: Ranger - Super Fine Detail Clear Embossing Powder; Imagine - Sheer Shimmer Spray
