Fusion Challenge - Jan 29th - Heart Full

It's time for the next Fusion Challenge and appropriately enough to help us with the Valentine's we need to give in a couple of weeks - we've got hearts again to inspire us!
I actually did the FUSION this week (whoo hoo!) being inspired by both the hearts photo and the sketch!
I made my silver heart out of a Foil Tape Sheet from Ranger - die cutting it with a heart Nestability and embossing it with a Hounds Tooth embossing folder.  Then I adhered the silver heart to a white card stock heart for stability.  I colored the silver with Adirondack Alcohol Inks - Mushroom, Caramel and Pitch Black.  Then I layered it over the die cut red heart using foam tape.  I made my own barnboard background by scoring lines on a piece of white card stock and then rubbing Vintage Photo and Pumice Stone Distress Inks over the panel.
The sentiment is from Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 Lovely Art set.  Instead of banners - I adhered a row of die cut hearts along the bottom of my sentiment strip using a die from the Love Notes set from Reverse Confetti.  The little plastic heart with the arrow through it was on a pin I had in my stash -  I cut off the pin and just glued the heart to the panel.
How will this lovely new Fusion Challenge inspire you?   You will find all the challenge information, the link up and lots of inspiration from the rest of the Design Team over at the Fusion Challenge Blog
