Fusion 3 - (Another!) Rainbow Birthday


I haven't played along with Fusion since they restarted, but this week's sketch really caught my eye. The possibilities are literally endless!

I decided to focus only on the sketch. I  overlapped my Clear and Simple Stamps Alpha Duo stamps and then partially coloured and completely Stickle-fied them to create the 'birthday' and a Waltzingmouse sentiment for the 'happy'. And then I planned to put it onto a (you got it!) black mat and a white card. But today, I'm wild, I'm unpredictable! I created a rainbow mat by simply using copics in small blocks around the edge. It is a separate layer, because that way you don't have to worry about perfection in your colouring - the edge of the top layer cleans everything up nicely!

I'm also linking up to Less Is More's rainbow challenge. Take a look at this inspiration photo - it's AWESOME!
