On The Runway

I'm just hangin' out on the Runway today.  Or...I'm just playing along with Runway Inspired Challenges because the chances of this 5'5" normal weight figure being a model aren't exactly huge.  Just sayin'.  HA!


This is the inspiration photo.  To be honest, it didn't catch me right away.  Why?  I saw lavender.  I KNOW, it's not a color challenge, I could change it up, but then I was like... well...it IS MINT and lavender.  with a touch of coral and a cute shoe.  Hmmm.... maybe I should attempt to tackle lavender.  I also noticed the pop of color in her handbag and the embossed pattern on her skirt.  A subtle shirt pattern....  yup.  It's all there.  I should make a card.  (Welcome to the squishy parts of my brain where I make stuff.  What you just read is pretty much my inner dialogue.  HA!)

Love Having You In My Life


The lines are so straight and linear in the inspiration photo and i kinda love that, so I went with it for my design.  I layered a tone on tone die cut to mimic the texture on the skirt, as well.  LOVE that part!  Just sayin'.

Having You In My Life (detail)


My tip for you today... If you are ever given the opportunity to purchase glitter paper.  DO IT, dudes!  This stuff is shiny and sparkly and FABULOUS!  For reals.  Just sayin'.

Have a Happy!!!

I just got some glitter paper in a kit and it made me a little nervous.
But it looks so pretty on your card :)
