Runway Inspired Challenge #30

Hello there!

It is time for a new Runway Inspired challenge, and joining us as a guest designer is none other than Jennifer Mcguire!!

Here is the inspiration photo:

Well, we have something a little different this time, two sets of outfits instead of the usual one.  My first take was the scattered flowers which are present in both outfits. Initially I wanted to use a black grid against yellow as background for my flowers (outfit on right). However, my flowers being very light in color were not looking prominent enough against a busy background, so I decided to back them with navy blue (left outfit) and came with this:

I decided to mimic the rusty looking wall for the background of my panel. I applied distress ink (frayed burlap)  with a sponge applicator on a piece of white card stock. I wasn’t being careful to blend it well so it came out pretty quickly. I then sprinkled some water droplets all over.

To make the roses, I used this flower punch. You can watch this video on YouTube to see how to make them.

I used white card stock to punch out the flowers, and applied ink to the edges of the outer petals. I left the innermost one completely white. The leaves are die cuts from this Memory box die.

This week’s sponsor is Ellen Hutson, and the winner will get a $25 gift card to her store!

  1. Wow! Your card looks just like the wall. I love the blue behind the flowers, which are perfect. You did it just right. Love it.

  2. Hehe, it’s funny – as I was looking at the inspiration photo I was thinking of drawing from the background to create. Great minds! Your distress ink background is *fabulous* and those flowers are incredible – I’m stunned that they were handmade!

  3. Brilliant! I cannot believe you made those flowers (especially after looking at the punch). Wow! You never cease to amaze me in your creativity. The inking and water droplets in the background are fantastic!
