Runway Inspired Challenge – ric#48


ric48 get well

Here I am, back for the latest Runway Inspired Challenge, ric#48 .  I embossed roses, foliage, and butterflies on cream card stock, and roughly water colored some of the images. I inset the sentiment and the hearts by die cutting the background and replacing the die cut pieces with pale pink (Blushing Bride) pieces. I tried black hearts (to match the black on the bodice of the dress), but my heart die was a bit too big, black hearts looked a little macabre. So, I used the pale pink, water colored over them a bit, and then added clear Wink of Stella for the shimmer.

This is the Antonio Marras inspiration look for this challenge:
