Fusion- Something Blue


Hello on this early Thursday morning.  Is everyone excited about this week's Fusion Challenge?  I sure am!  Here is the inspiration photo.

Here is my take on the challenge:


I took my own spin on the challenge.  I used these lovely flowers that remind me of the Grape Hyacinth that always grew in our yard growing up.  They were an early spring flower that sorta popped up willy-nilly in the flower beds.  I loved the different shape and color.  Now that I think about it was probably by design by my father, but it seemed so mysterious at the time.  Here is what they look like.  
So for my card I used this image which came from the SU! Occasions Catalog.  I  Stamped them and colored them with my Copics.  YOu can't see it here, but I then roughly tore them out, close to the blooms for a bit of a shabby look and popped them out. I stamped and cut the sentiment on Kraft. I coupled it all with the various blue cardstocks (also SU!).  I then added some additional distressing.  I love the way the blue pops out against the white. 

So, will you join us for this challenge?  I hope so and can't wait to see how you are inspired!

Thanks for visiting.
