Runway Rewind

So, you remember that one time, yesterday, when I posted my Runway Inspired Challenge card? Yeah, well, I have another one today. Dude. I TOLD you I loved that inspiration image! For reals, though.

Today's card uses basically the same sketch I used yesterday, only I moved the sentiment a bit, played with the colors, and used completely different mediums. So, in other words, it's the same, but different.

Here is a reminder of the inspiration picture just in case you were a slacker yesterday and didn't see my post yet. (Yeah, dude. I totes just called you out for that. I mean, seriously, it's not like you can't browse blogs while you watch the Emmy's. They are mostly boring, anyway. For reals.)


And here is what I created based on this wonderfully inspiring look!

Hello


I used some awesome stamps from Winnie & Walter and distress inks to get the watercolor look on these. I generally prefer to use watercolor paints over inks, but with these layering stamps, it was SO easy to use the inks for a great look!

Floral Hello (detail)


I added a touch of clear Wink of Stella to the banner and to the sentiment for just a bit of lovely shimmer. I just LOVE sparkle! I also used the same woodgrain paper that I used yesterday, from Carta Bella's Sew Lovely collection. This is a surprisingly useful paper pad to have around. I really like it, and I totally don't sew, dudes.

So, there you have it! Between yesterday and today two pretty different cards that are actually pretty much the same. Fun stuff, folks. Fun. Stuff. You can find a full list of supplies I used for this card below in the links.

Have a Happy!

  6. Dude, this is all kinds of awesome. I *love* how you took what feels like a 'heavy' dress and created a light and airy card by bringing the colours out of it, and the flowers, but without it being overpowering! Seriously awesome! Thanks for strutting your stuff with us at Runway Inspired Challenge!

  7. So beautiful! But also a little edgy with the sentiment hanging out over the banner. Thanks so much for joining us on the Runway!
