I'm just popping by with a card I created for the next Runway Inspired Challenge. After the last one, I've become rather addicted. I'm truly happy to have been nominated as a Fabulous Fashionista in the last round (Thank you RIC team!)
The inspiration for this week's challenge is this gorgeous purple dress. The colors are just so rich and beautiful. I immediately went to work.
This is my creation inspired by the Temperley dress:
I really wanted to emphasize the beautiful flowers and the black lace pattern. I started by stamping roses from Papertrey Ink's "The Sweet Life stamp set" onto water color paper. Next I colored them in with distressed ink markers. I went over them with water and I must admit I'll never get tired of this delicate look. I finished off with a black strip and a gold embossed sentiment. I used Hero Arts dye ink in black to stamp the flowers as well as distress the embossed side panel. Purple is my favorite color, so I just adore this card!
I'll also be entering this card into A Blog Named Hero's Challenge #37 Flowers, where the theme just so happens to be flowers :P
Until next time, keep on crafting.
