Runway Inspired Challenge #38

Hello Hello!

It’s time for a new Runway Inspired Challenge, and we have the sweet and super talented Iwona Palamountain joining us as our Guest Designer!!

Here is this week’s inspiration:

The first thing I noticed was the skirt. It looked like embossed metal to me!  So I decided to use embossed foil paper. I made my own foil paper by adhering aluminum foil to white card stock and then embossed it with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

After that I was a little stuck with what to do with it! I started rummaging in my stamps and saw a huge ornament stamp that looked a little like the pattern on the shirt. I stamped it in Distress ink milled lavender, and from there I was able to use my foil paper embellishment:

As you can see, I cut a circle out of the embossed foil paper and covered the center part of the ornament. While wondering where should the sentiment go, I noticed the circular sentiment from mama elephant. Good thing I did, for I don’t know where else I would have put a sentiment. It is embossed in white on bright orange paper.

Here is another view of the card where the embossed pattern is more visible:

  1. I really love this card; the embossed aluminum foil is such a great idea and it looks so lovely inside the lavender stamp; I like how the sentiment is in a warm color like the purse, but not the exact shade
