Hello! Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Just popping in on this busy Black Friday to share a card I made for the Runway Inspired Challenge #96. It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to participate in a Runway Inspired Challenge, which is sad because they are my favorite. Here is the gorgeous inspiration piece,
I stamped Altenew’s Magnolias For Her in versafine black onyx ink on watercolor paper. I watercolored the flowers and the background in colors similar to the inspiration dress. However when I was finished I did not like the watercolored background. I really liked the solid gray background with the loose watercolored flowers on the inspiration dress, so I decided to try and replicate that look by painting the background with acrylic paint.
While that dried I designed and cut the front purple panel with my cricut. I clear embossed the cut purple panel to make it glossy to match the background I painted with acrylics. I then I watercolored a piece of watercolor paper the same dimensions as the purple panel in blue gradient to create a ombré effect. I hope you enjoyed!!
