Poppies and Striped Thank You Card – Fusion {red, white & blue} Challenge


fusion challenge poppies blue stripes thank you

Here is my take on the latest Fusion Challenge {red, white & blue}.

I made the stripes using a Heidi Swapp stencil mini, and I added blue Pearl-Ex into the paste, hoping to catch some of the iridescence without the mess. I like the color I created, but I lost the iridescence.

The flowers were circle die cut, then I notched out with scissors.

Here are the inspiration photo and sketch – I fell for the photo and ignored the sketch.

  1. Fashion as an inspiration for you generally leads to great results. I really like the flowers used here.
