Welcome all to a brand new Fusion Challenge - I think we are acknowledging that summer is winding down and we're looking ahead to the earth tones of fall with the inspiration photo!!
I was inspired mostly by the photo for this challenge - although I do have a sentiment strip in there! The shelf unit in the photo made me think of my Poppy Stamps screen door die and I thought this paper from Paper Stash/Seasonal by Idea-ology worked to represent the letters (these are all portions of Thanksgiving words on the paper - Gobble, Turkey, Pumpkin, cranberry, thanks and family from top to bottom). I rubbed some Frayed Burlap Distress Paint over the edges and then distressed the edge as well.
I die cut the door and then pounced Ranger Distress Paints over it - using Rusty Hinge, Seedless Preserves and Frayed Burlap - to give it that peeled paint look. I added a brad for the door handle. I adhered the door to the panel with strips of foam tape.
The screen door actually opens to reveal the complete sentiment that I stamped on a Sentiment Strip. I added some Chocolate Sundae Sequins to draw your eye around the card and layered the panel to a piece of Scarlet Jewel paper and then to my Rustic Cream card base.
So now it's your turn! Will you be inspired by the photo or the sketch - or maybe you will do a FUSION - combing both on your creation?? You'll find all the details and the link up here.
