Runway Inspired Challenge #29

It’s Tuesday, and that means it’s time for a new Runway Inspired Challenge!

Before I go into that, I just want to mention that choosing the winners for the last challenge was really tough, as there were so many amazing entries!  Thank you for all who participated!

Now onto the inspiration photo:

Love the colors in this ensemble! I also love the stacked luggage. At first I wanted to use a picture of stacked luggage that I had kept from a magazine. But then I decide to go with something not so literal:

Bird on wall

Since our sponsor this week is Stephanie from Clearly Besotted Stamps, I decided to use on of her stamps.

To make the brick wall, I first stamped the flower from Clearly Besotted Stamps Happy Everything on the cream strip of card stock. I then cut it up into the bricks. Using a sponge dauber I applied brown ink on all sides. Finally I glued them back together on a piece of copy paper, which I adhered to the card base.

I also loved the backdrop of the model, and tried to create something similar with alcohol inks. However, I used that piece on another card. Yes, I have more than one card for this post.

I wanted to make yet another card using by brick embossing folder. So here is the third and final card:

brick flowers

I used walnut cream card stock and embossed it with Hero Arts soft stone ink applied on the embossing folder. The flowers are colored with Copic markers.

Hope you are inspired, and can joins us at the Runway Inspired Challenge! The winner will get TWO stamp sets from Clearly Besotted Stamps!!

  1. I always love visiting your blog, especially on RIC days because you usually have some surprises! I love the extra cards you made- everything is gorgeous! (but my fave has to be that first one…awesome!)

  2. I love the technique you used of stamping the flower on a brick background, cutting up the bricks and sponging the sides. That’s a lot of work but worthwhile. All cards came out great!

  3. The brick embossing is beautiful! I love how you took the same photo but different elements to inspire your cards! Now I really have to try another go at this!

  4. What a wonderful collection of cards! I love them all – the embossed brick with flowers is gorgeous and I adore your Ric card. The stamping on the bricks is so so original and works so well!
