Smoky Starfruit Fusion

Hi there!

When I saw the current Fusion challenge I was inspired to combine it with the colour challenge at Create with Connie and Mary...

I was inspired by the dress form along with the sketch and so took out some dsp and my Dress Up framelits and came up with this...

Oh how I love that big fat bow!! I recently ordered some striped Summer Starfruit ribbon from the Spring/Summer catty and this was my first opportunity to use it on a project... love! The dress form was created with Naturals ivory card, stamped with the large stamp from Postage Due, then sponged with Summer Starfruit and Smoky Slate inks.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Postage Due, Petite Pairs
Ink: Stazon, Pacific Point, Summer Starfruit, Smoky Slate
Paper: Sweet Sorbet dsp, Modern Medley dsp, Naturals Ivory, Smoky Slate, Pacific Point, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Summer Starfruit striped ribbon, Very Vintage designer buttons, silver baker's twine
Tools: Ovals framelits, dress up framelits, Thinlit card dies, piercing template and tool

Thanks for stopping by!
