Fusion Thursday

Happy ALMOST weekend!  Are you ready for it?  I sure am!  In fact, I wish it was here already, but I guess I can get through two more work days... :)

Today is another amazing Fusion Challenge.  Hopefully you got to see the challenge from last week and all the amazing entries, I mean WOW!  Seriously some amazing crafters out there, shout out to all of you and thank you for joining us for the bi-weekly Fusion Challenge.  It is so fun for us on the DT to see all your amazing creations.

So let's get to this week shall we?  Here is our inspiration for this week:


I can tell you that I had a TON of fun with this image.  I typically have a completed idea in my head when I start, it often gets modified along the way, but it is there none the less.  With this one I only had a partial and wasn't sure where I was going with it.  Here is my final product. 


I used my MFT pocket die cut in Marina Mist and distressed it with Baja Breeze, Navy and some Tim Holtz brown to make it look like real vintage jeans.  I even added white stitching with my chalkboard marker.  The purple flowers are another MFT die cut that I love.  The flowers are from two older SU! sets.  The white flowers are done on white paper with white embossing powder.  I added some yellow Gelatos over the top to add that rich center, it also added just a little tint to the rest of the flower.  The other little flower (mostly leaves) is done on Wasabi paper in clear embossing powder.  I then used some white crayon to color the flowers in.  Finally, the sentiment is die cut from Simon Says Stamp.  Originally, I started with some other flowers for the daisies that I didn't like, so I am pretty happy with how this turned out.  Hopefully, it will cheer someone up when they are in need.

Whew!  That was a lot of talking on my part...  I hope you will come over to Fusion and check out all the fun and play with us!?!
