Runway Inspired Challenge # 28

Hello everyone!

It is time for another challenge from the Runway! Here is this week’s inspiration photo:

Awesome dress, don’t you agree? Love the flow and the look of transparency of the fabric! When I saw this, my first thought was to use vellum! and so I did, I used Vellum circles and made this card:

I chose a cloud and four different colored vellum sheets, and ran them through my Xyron machine to apply even adhesive on the back. I then punched out circles of various sizes and arranged them randomly all over the card front. I stamped the sentiment on the card base with cocoa ink before placing a light pink circle on top. This way there is no risk of the ink getting smudged (from my experience, dye ink almost never dries on vellum!).

Here is a picture of the vellum papers that I have used, notice the clouds one? it looks pretty cool over dark paper.

  1. Gorgeous! Thanks for the tip on placing the sentiment UNDER the vellum! The only solution I’ve found to getting sentiments onto vellum is to heat emboss, and it’s good to have an alternative!

  2. So amazed at what a great job you did on your random circles … there are so many, and you’ve placed them all in such a pleasing way! Even with the different sizes they look very together. Super fun card! Love your Runway posts : )
