Hey everyone! Happy Friday!! I hope you’re all having a great day!!
Well, the other night I ended up creating a card for the latest Runway Inspired Challenge – but I hadn’t intended to, lol! I guess I was just inspired!
Gorgeous dresses! No wonder I had to make something for it!! I missed the last challenge out as I was
licking my wounds for not winning the challenge before taking a quick break, but this felt like the perfect opportunity to get back in the saddle!
I was drawn more to the dress on the right, and that was what led me to create this:
Hmmm – I’m not 100% certain on this card, lol!! The flower clusters bug me, I don’t think they’re balanced well enough! But I can’t for the life of me figure out how to better place them! It’s driving me crazy!!
So I’ve left it as-is and will just talk you through my process instead, lol. 🙂
I started with a panel of Golden Tiara cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot with the Linen & Canvas Impression Plate, inking up the plate with Versafine Onyx Black ink first to impart that black fibres look! I then sliced up my panel into a variety of sizes and adhered to my True Black card base using Scor-Tape.
Next came all the flowers! I stamped them from the Mini Blooms set onto Stamper’s Select White cardstock using Hero Arts Butter Bar ink, A:Muse inks in Blueberry, Cobalt, Sage, Grapefruit, Shell, Burano and Cherry, and PTI Hibiscus Burst ink. Lots of inks!
I then trimmed them all out and adhered to the base using Pinflair Glue Gel. I must be one of the few out there who own a die set and yet still choose to trim out images by hand(!)!!
Finally I added the sentiment, from Irresistibly Ikat using Versamark ink and heat embossed with Filigree Black embossing powder. I love how this turned out – I was a little nervous it wouldn’t stand out enough against the panel!!
Well, that’s it from me for now! But stay tuned as I just *might* be back later with another sneaky sneak of information about StampSpotlight!! Thanks so much for stopping by – I would love it if you left some love before you head on your way!
