Runway Inspired Challenge #63

Hello again!

I tried my hand at water coloring today, and it was so much fun! It felt like it has been ages since I made a card. The last card I made was over two weeks ago! The card I am about to share was inspired by the latest Runway Inspired Challenge:

I simply loved the floral patterns, all the white space, and the angular geometric lines. My card is inspired by the colors and texture of the pattern on the bodice.

To create the card, first I stamped some flowers and leaves on a piece of water color paper using a light colored ink. Next I did a quick water color blending the colors and not worrying too much about having defined lines. Once the panel was completely dry, I stamped the same flowers and leaves using black ink.

Since water color paper is quite thick, I didn’t want to attach the panel on top of the card base, so I cut the front of the card base at 1″ from the top, then cut off 2 inches from the piece that was sliced off. I trimmed the water color panel slightly larger than the 2″ gap, and glued it behind the two pieces, completing the front of the card. Finally I added a quarter inch wide strip of black card stock, and stamped the sentiment on top.

This challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamps, and the winner will receive a $15 gift certificate to their online store.
