Runway Inspired Happy Birthday

Today I have a card for the current Runway Inspired Challenge which features this fabulous outfit.


I just love how the colourful flowers contrast against the bold design of the black and white.

I went for a graphic look and created my background by using painter's tape and masking off a chevron pattern and inking it up with Black Soot Distress Ink.

The Stencil Flower from Hero Arts was white embossed onto watercolour paper and coloured with Distress Inks in Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves.  To get the inks to blend I sprayed them heavily with water and one quick spray of Perfect Pearls.

I finished off with a sentiment from Altenew and a few embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. This flower is absolutely gorgeous. The black bold stripes remind me of a runway, but I do see how the dress was influential - my first thought was a runway and it all comes together so well!
