Hi all! Today I am guesting at the Runway Inspired Challenge blog. I’ve always loved the creative cards that are a result of the challenges there, so I was super excited when they approached me to be a guest designer. :)
Today marks the 40th challenge, and the focus is on Stella McCartney Resort 2014…
Whew! This was a challenge! I brainstormed over this inspiration for many days before coming across an idea that I wanted to pursue.
Here’s what I came up with. First, I die cut some masking paper using the Falling Hearts die. Then I applied the mask to the card front and pounced Red Royal, Charcoal, and Golden Glitz ink in order to create the sort of “dotted” look of the skirt. I did the red and dark gray ink with sponge daubers, but then realized the tips were too big to get all the little hearts. So then I used a cotton bud (q-tip) to add the gold.
Make sure you check out the Runway Inspired Challenge blog. They have an awesome design team and I love seeing their takes on the different fashion inspiration. It all make my little Project-Runway-loving heart pitter patter. :)
