Runway Inspired Challenge – ric#36, with CC427

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).

Electric Feathers Fall 2013 (style) ric 36

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.

  1. I have enjoyed your runway inspired challenges. This is a lovely card and yes, they do look like hershey kisses.

    • Oh, thanks, Terry! The runway challenges push me to think outside of the box – which is a good thing. I can’t look at the other entries until I finish my own – I get hung up on supplies I don’t have.

  2. I love the patterns on your card, and that red background is gorgeous! Thanks for joining us on the Runway!
