Fusion - Family with Pigment Sprinkles

Welcome friends! I thought I give this Fusion challenge a go this week and I used the sketch part only:
I recently have been working with the new Stampin' Up! Pigment Sprinkles. They are really fun to play with and so vibrant! Unlike most watercolor that fades out, these Pigment Sprinkles are brilliant! To make the quilt-like top, I painted stripes with each of the colors of the Pigment Sprinkles.
Hand painted, not perfect of course! That is the charm of a handmade card. Next I cut it apart using a 2" Layering Square Die.
I cut them on my trimmer twice more diagonally. That gave me lots of triangles with which to play. I created a  background out of Whisper White Thick card stock for the top flap. The quilt pieces were put in a pattern on this background and attached all with Stampin' Dimensionals.
The butterflies were stamped with Versamark ink on Fluid 100 watercolor paper and heat embossed with the new Shimmer Black Emboss Powder. It really has a great sparkle. They were colored with the Pigment Sprinkles, too. I ran them through my Big Shot with the butterfly Stained Glass Die. They were all placed on top of a piece of vellum cut with a Layering Circle Die. I used mini-dimensionals to attach them.

The sentiment is from the Band Together stamp set and the corners of the base were rounded with the Detailed Trio Punch.

Thanks for sticking to the end. If you'd like to purchase any of the items shown, just click on any link below:
