Runway Inspired

I managed to find some time to play along with the current Runway Inspired Challenge. It's been ages since I've joined in and I had a blast with the inspiration photo.

I was inspired by the geometric pattern and that you could see through the dress.

For the background I applied Squeezed Lemonade and Abandonned Coral Distress Inks through the Heidi Swapp Fence Stencil. I cleaned off the stencil, placed it back on the design and applied Translucent Embossing Paste on top. This paste dries clear so the colours beneath are still visible.

I die cut Paper Smooches Roses Die and Leaves from black card stock and backed them with vellum so the background design would still be visible.

I finished off with a sentiment from the Altenew Label Love set and a few enamel dots.

You can see the shine and texture from the embossing paste in this photo.

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