Runway Inspired #62

It's been a long time since I've made a card for the Runway Inspired Challenge. But with a little free time and a beautiful photo to get my mojo working, I decided to play along.

Isn't this dress so pretty...I was totally inspired by the gliding birds against the dark blue background.

I did tone-on-tone stamping with Hero Arts Flourish Background and made some stencils of flying birds on my Silhouette and used them to add embossing paste on top of  the flourishes.  While the embossing paste was still wet I sprinkled on Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter for a subtle sparkle.


I stamped the sentiment on vellum, added a strip of silver glitter paper, some May Arts Silk Ribbon and a pretty button to finish off the card. I was thinking this would be a great card for a wedding.

There's still plenty of time to play along with the challenge, you'll find all the deets here.

I'm also entering this in Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge.
