Paper and Ink Imaginings

Runway Inspired Challenge – ric#50


ric50 birthday card

Here is my try at the latest Runway Inspired Challenge – ric#50. Another supply struggle – I had Stampin’ Up! Summer Starfruit paper, which I thought was a good color match, but my Summer Starfruit marker was not consistent with the paper (too brown). So I only used the paper.

Here is the Matthew Williamson inspiration look:

  1. I love your runway inspired challenges. The flowers look like fabric, are they? Really lovely card.

    • Thanks, Terry!! Offspring3 & I really liked this one, too. The flowers are made of vellum (translucent paper, you might see it as an overlay on a fancy invitation)…I stamped the flowers, embossed with silver, then die cut the image.

  2. Absolutely beautiful. Offspring 3 obviously has your good taste!

  3. Gorgeous flowers.

  4. This is SO cool~I love those flowers!

  5. This is fantastic Kathy! Love those vellum embossed flowers!

  6. I love the embossed vellum flowers – amazing 3D texture and lovely take on the inspiration!

  7. Those flowers are to die for! What adhesive did you use behind the vellum? I can’t see it at all! Thanks for joining us on the Runway!

    PS. Don’t worry about color matching- since we are not a color challenge, you can find inspiration in any way! (ex. flowers, shine from her pants, etc)

    • Oh, thank you, Jen! I used a tiny bit of Crystal Effects (Stampin’ Up! version of Glossy Accents) behind the flowers – the embossed center detail of the flower was enough to hide the glue. And I know The Runway Inspired Challenge is not a color challenge…the vision in my head was the chartreuse color, and I dropped a small aspect of the design because my supplies didn’t work out.
