Runway Inspired Challenge #75–Hello, Beautiful!

Hola Peeps!

Phew, what a whirlwind the last few weeks has been around here!  And it’s not going to get much better anytime soon.  I’m getting ready to attend the upcoming Craft & Hobby Association  winter show – Disneyland for crafters, I tell ya!  Needless to say, I have a ton of details to take care of before I take off on Friday, but I am BEYOND excited!  Before I go, I have the newest Runway Inspired Challenge to share with you all!

RIC75 Graphic

Be still  my heart!!  Is this not uber gorgeous and amazing?!!  That shocking pink with the elegant filigree neckline . . . blows my mind.  Here’s my take from the inspiration:

RIC75 - Hello Beautiful

I took my inspiration from that incredible blast of fuchsia as well as the glittery neckline.  I immediately thought of a stamp set that I had in my stash from many moons ago.  I think I bought it at Hobby Lobby when I first started stamping – ha!  I stamped the large damask image on the Razzle Berry panel using VersaMark, and then heat embossed it with some amazingly sparkly embossing powder called Midnight Twinkle.  Yummy!!  I stamped the sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp set called Summer Garden using VersaMark and then heat embossed it with some black embossing powder.  I added a strip of  yellow Shape N Tape to bring in those subtle pops of yellow.  I’ve listed all of the products I used below.

You should click on through to the Runway Inspired Challenge Blog to get all the deets of the challenge, see the loveliness that my sweet teammates have created for you, and to link up YOUR take on the challenge.  There’s a gift certificate up for grabs from our awesome sponsor, Simon Says StampYou have until Friday, January 16th to play along!

That’s it for me today, friends!  I’ve got a million and one errands to run before I leave on Friday, but I’ll be popping in a few more times this week to announce some winners and to post my next Avery Elle project!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
