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:

PPA179 – Get Well Card

ppa179 get well

The Pals Paper Arts challenge this week is a color challenge, PPA179 . The colors are Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, and Rich Razzleberry.

I have to tell you, Crushed Curry and Rich Razzleberry together took me back to the first day of school in 6th grade. We had been school clothes shopping at Korvettes, and I had gotten a maroon/dark berry fine wale corduroy mini skirt, and a gold skinny ribbed shirt. I thought I was IT. (cute & age appropriate, maybe, but “it”? NO!)

And, yes, my brother wants to know how I remember all of this. 😉

Supplies: Stamps – Lawn Fawn, Stampin’ Up!, paper – Papertrey Ink White, Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Rich Razzleberry, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (speech bubble), Reverse Confetti (tag), embossing folder – Stampin’ Up!, sequins & wooden heart – Studio Calico, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, twine – We R Memory Keepers.
