Fusion Floral

The gorgeous Fusion Floral challenge brought me back to my paint chip stash... and a favorite little Martha punch that I've used again, and again!  Here is the inspiration photo:
Beautiful Anemones!
 
Oh I do wish I had an Anemone stamp, but hope this floral punch will do:
 
 
I've combined the photo and sketch, added a favorite Ali Edwards sentiment, and tiny dots of platinum for the stamens. I may be cheating on Ben Moore with a little Dutch Boy here... shhh, don't tell!!! =\
 
Thanks for stopping over... I love it when you do =]

Gorgeous, love that stripe of fuchsia behind your panels.

The way you used the paint chips and punch is so pretty. Love that sentiment!

Chriss Blagrave said...

Love these darling punched flowers with the added stamens. The sentiments seems a perfect reflection of the image and I love how you paired these together!

Marybeth's comment reminded me that I was going to ask what you have your cards setting on--love the clean look and the reflection. Love this card with the great design using 3's! I still haven't picked up any paint chips and you keep reminding me--lol!! BTW, did you see my doodling card that you inspired me to make?

Pretty purples and those popped up flowers are fantastic! I love purple, I wear it more than I craft with it though.

Joyce said...

Fantastic card. You know me and my paint chips--love love them. Never thought about this way, though. Love the partial die cuts. And, how you have 3 panels and 3 thank you's. Love the balance.

Paint chips have never looked so pretty, Michele (well, unless they're here on your blog, that is!) ... the addition of the vibrant pink slender strip is fabulous! Hugs, Anita :)

Kelly Griglione said...

Huh, you used paint chips, but cut apart the different colors. Love that! Your pink strip behind really highlights that. A lovely trio of purple flowers! So glad you joined the Fusion Challenge, Michele!
