Fusion: Summer Dreaming

Welcome to a new challenge at Fusion! This is my last ever post for the Fusion challenge blog - I have been on the design team since 2014, and have thoroughly enjoyed it! I decided earlier this year that it was time to step down.

The printed sentiment is from Paper Rose, cut with a die from Hero Arts.   I had a very, VERY old ink pad that had a rainbow of colours on a series of little foam pads. The foam had degraded so much that the pad was unusable, so I swiped the pad over some card bases and then scraped the degraded foam off the surface with a stencil scraping tool.

(You could achieve the same look by masking off stripes and ink blending heavily with a rainbow inks) 

Make sure you check out all the rest of the inspiration at the Fusion challenge blog, and play along with your own creation!

Thanks for visiting :)
