Runway Inspired Challenge #81

Hello,

I am back after a looong absence! Recently I have been very occupied with Altenew, and I hardly had a chance to craft.

However, today I finally made some time and designed a card for the latest Runway Inspired Challenge.

Oh the bold colors! I wasn’t sure what to make at first, and in fact, my first card came out really bad!

On my second attempt I made this card:

I started by stamping the smaller trio of leaves from the Altenew Peony Scrolls set. My original goal was to create a cluster in the center, and I had my card base in portrait position. However, my deign shifted down and to the right. Instead of starting again, I simply continued stamping off the edges, and added a single leaf cluster on top left (in portrait position). I colored the leaves with Copic markers. When it came time to place the greeting, no position seemed to look good. After much deliberation, I turned the design landscape, and I think it worked.

Sometimes you start with a certain design in mind, and end up with a completely different one!

To join the challenge, please visit the Runway Inspired Challenge blog. You still have until Friday midnight EST to enter.

Oh and I almost forgot! The sentiment that I used here is from Bossy Jocie. I love the cute and whimsical feel of it. Bossy Jocie also happens to be the sponsor of this challenge. One lucky winner will receive a $20 gift card to Bossy Joscie!

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Tasnim……….Welcome back I have missed you. Your creativity is a big inspiration to me. I love Altenew. Your stamps are excellent.

  2. Hi Tasnim. Came by to tell you I love your card for RIC 83. When I saw that dress, the first thing I thought was “hey those are prints of real flowers.” Love that you made that happen on your card.
