Fusion Card Challenge #19

Grey, pink, black and white is such a striking colour combination.
I am definitely showing my age here, but I do remember wearing these colours in the 80's, a la Joan Collins, with shoulders pads!! So funny to look back at old photos........what were we thinking!!

I decided to go with fusion for this weeks Fusion Challenge.

At first I had no idea where I was heading with this card. I started with the bird and grasses and built it from there. I am pleased with the outcome. As with my last card, I resisted the strong urge to add twine or ribbon.
I stamped the bird on the white base, then stamped it again and cut it out to raise it on foam. The grasses are a wee stamp stamped three times.

Stamps: Inkadinkadoo bird, Hero arts, Not sure about the grasses.
Dies: PTI, wee butterfly punch, Cropadile corner rounder
Inks: Versafine black, Versacolor Pink, Hero Arts white embossing powder
Card: Neenah white, Kaisercraft
Other: Sequins and Rhinestones

That's it from me. Time to cook hubby dinner.
I hope you're having a creative day.

I love your use of sequins! I'm tempted to use that idea on my cards too :-) Simple but well-placed. Lovely cards as usual! :-)
