Runway Inspired

Happy Monday all! The holidays are over and hooray my kids are all back in school. Unfortunately I had two sick kids that took turns staying home last week so today I gave a little cheer as they all went off to school!!!

I had a little time this weekend to participate in the latest Runway Inspired Challenge (#75). Here is he card that I created...

The inspiration for this was this fabulous Ralph Lauren dress.

 If you pull click on the photo and bring it up larger you will see that the neckline is encrusted with a ton of brightly colored jewels. Thus the sequins and jewels that I incorporated into my card. I started with a stencil and blended Picked Raspberry Distress ink. Then I colored in the white spaces with two different colors of blue watercolor pencils and went over that with a wet brush.

Here's a close up of the sentiment. I chose to keep it simple with white on white. Just popped up the 'happy' a bit and added wee little flower to balance it out.

Stencil: Pink Paislee She Art by Christy Tomlinson
Watercolor Pencils: Derwent InkTense
Ink:  Picked Raspberry Distress Ink
Hibiscus Burst, Simply Chartreuse and Smokey Shadow by Papertrey Ink
Stamps: Embellished Elegance by Papertrey Ink
Dies: Lovely Layers, Embellished Elegance by Papertrey Ink
Felt: Fresh Snow and Simply Chartreuse by Papertrey Ink

Thanks for stopping by.

I love how all of the color and excitement is at the top of the card, then you contrasted near the bottom with your white-on-white sentiment. Awesome! Thanks so much for joining us on the Runway! :)
