Fusion Card Challenge - Create

Hi there blog friends ~ It's time for a new challenge at Fusion and this time our prompt is ‘Create’. This time I used the inspiration photo for my card ~


I was inspired by the word 'Create' on the wall and the wooden chair for the handle on the paintbrush.
I started by stenciling and splattering the background, then used a piece of an alcohol inked panel for the die cut word. I added a simple stamped sentiment and die cut paintbrush for fun :) To add a little contrast, I placed the wonky stitched panel on a grout gray card base ~ 

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 teamies have created some beautiful cards to inspire you, so feel free to stop by the challenge blog and play along with us!

Thanks so much for taking a few minutes out of your day to stop by,







Supplies:
Stamps: MFT - Too Cute Turtles (sentiment)
Dies: MFT - Wonky Stitched Rectangles; SSS - Create; Paper Smooches - Paint Palette
Stencils: ARTplorations - Art Splatters
