Runway Inspired


Happy Friday :) It's good that the weekend is here as I do love spending time with my hunny & I do miss him during the week between 9 and 5. Only 7 days now till we leave for the US and I can safely say that I'm almost set to go and getting rather over excited - Ha!

Anyway, back to todays card...

It's been a while since I joined in with the Runway Inspired Challenge & I often seek inspiration from fashion and interiors when I'm designing. So when I saw the current challenge HERE and seen below, I had to play along and made the card seen above.

I've definitely had a 'thing' for the flower cluster stamp from Flower Power #1 this week! I was draw to the colours and overlapping floral design which helped with the choosing of the stamp and also the white strip down the middle of the dress with the elongated black triangle. Instead of it going straight I decided to put it on an angle on my card for a bit of interest and also to stamp the sentiment.

I masked the star off whilst inking my sentiment and removing the mask prior to stamping as I wanted to replace it with a fussy cut out flower. I used the elongated arrow from Accent Essentials: Arrows to direct the focus to the sentiment and replicate the elongated arrow seen on the dress. 

Overall I'm really quite happy with how this card turned out. It has a lot less white space than my usual creations but it's still quite CAS. It's good to step out of the comfy zone now and then, don't you think?

That's all from me today, but I will be back tomorrow with more to share & it is also Super FREE Saturday tomorrow so be sure to stop by to see what little FREEBIE I have in store for you this month! Don't forget there is still plenty of time to join in on the Uniko Studio Challenge #2, I'd love to see you play along with us :)
