The latest Runway Inspired Challenge (ric#56) had me thinking hard! My first thought was to emboss a butterfly in black, and to color it, but I didn’t have the right butterfly stamp or die for the job.
I used the larger candle flame from the Papertrey Ink stamp set Polka Dot Parade #12 to create a flower in the four main colors I saw in the inspiration piece. I stamped and embossed the sentiment on a vellum strip and layered it over the flower. I think it diffuses the colors a bit, and is a nod to the fog/mist in the inspiration photo. The vellum is attached to the back of the panel, so no adhesive is showing.
Here is the inspiration piece by Alice + Olivia:
