Fusion: Snap, I forgot your birthday!



We're already up to Fusion #12!

Awesome work on last week's Fusion challenge ladies!

Check out the newest challenge:


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:


I was inspired by

colors
owl
camera


I thought this was going to be a slam dunk for me...I think the thing that was throwing me was that I wanted to incorporate everything in the picture onto my card...that wasn't going to happen.

Let's start with the blue panel, I embossed it with polkas because I see a ton of circles in the picture from the camera lens to the flowers.

I knew that I wanted to use my very neglected Hero Arts big owl, I've been on a mission to use what I have and especially the older stuff.  I inked her up with Hero Arts Pink Neon, ugh, whoever used my owl last didn't clean her.  {okay, that was probably me}...so it took me forever to get to this shade of pink...lots of stamping and cleaning {repeat}.


The feltie camera?  I've been hoarding it {Amy Tangerine}...truth be told, when I was digging around for something else, I came across a package of Amy's felties {yes, evidently I'm on a first name basis with her..come on, we are kindred spirits since we have the same first name and we're both Asian!}.  

I threw on some green sequins to represent the green camera...everything is nestled onto the yellow chevron bitty bag.

This will make a great

Snap!  I forgot your birthday!
