Fusion #9: Greetings from the Pacific Northwest



Hello!

Thank you for all the wonderful inspiration with Fusion #8!

Check out Fusion #9:


PROCEDURES:

1. Play with just Jackie's sketch challenge.

2. Play with just Lesley's inspiration photo challenge.

3. Or you can create FUSION by combining BOTH challenges into one card.

4. Use the challenge graphic and link back to Fusion in your post.

I'm on Lesley's Team:


Okay, my disclaimer to Washingtonians, use your imagination:


I realize that the Space Needle is not red.  I did more of a literal interpretation of the inspiration.

I was inspired by:

1. colors
2. raindrops
3. umbrella = Seattle 
4. Seattle = Space Needle

I used craft foam for the Space Needle die....actually my boy did the die cutting:)  Originally, I used American Crafts Silver Glitter paper but I LOVE the pop from the red foam, what do you think?

What inspires you?
