My entry for the current Runway Inspired Challenge (ric#36), with the addition of the colors for this week’s Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge (CC427 – Cherry Cobbler, Early Expresso, Marina Mist).
My eye went to the background on this inspiration piece.
Normally, I would be drawn to the perfect triangles in the sweater. I needed to figure out how to recreate that background. I found some mulberry paper in my stash, but none of it was the right color. Hmmm…Copics might help me with that? I colored Copic R39 (Garnet) over lime green mulberry paper. And it worked. I substituted the Papertrey Ink Victorian Lace Border die (is it me, or does it look like Hershey Kiss cross sections??) for the triangles, cut it twice (once in Chocolate Chip, once in Creamy Caramel), and pieced it together.
Supplies: Paper – Papertrey Ink Cream, Stampin’ Up! Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel (retired), Marina Mist, mulberry paper (brights – retired), ink – Copic R39, die – Papertrey Ink, flower punch – Martha Stewart, stones – Queen&Co. ROX, twine – Martha Stewart.
