Runway Inspired Challenge #80–Lucky Stars!

Hello sweet peeps!!

RIC80 Graphic

It’s time for the next Runway Inspired Challenge, and boy is it awesome!!  Check out that dress, people!!  Is it not amazing?!!  Here’s my take on the inspiration photo:

Karolyn Loncon - Proposed Inked Background - Smooshed Ink Technique

Fun, right?!!  Clearly, I was inspired by that celestial background in the dress.  I did my faux watercolor/smooshing technique with this background, where I pounce my mini distress ink pads (Broken China, Salty Ocean, and Chipped Sapphire) onto a craft mat, spritz the bajeebers out of them, and then smooshing some watercolor paper onto it, making sure that the whole panel is covered with ink.  I let it dry, and then die cut it with the Falling Stars Die from Simon Says Stamp.  Once I attached the sentiment panel, I die cut both panels with one of the Stitched Rectangles from Lawn Fawn.  The whole card was assembled with foam tape – BOOM!  LOL

The sentiment panel was die cut using the cloud border from Mama Elephant, and the sentiment is from an amazing stamp set by WPlus9 Designs.  I’ve listed all the products I used below, if you’re interested.

We’d love for you all to play along with us!  You can click on through to the Runway Inspired Challenge Blog for all the deets of the challenge, as well as the link up tool for you to link up YOUR take on the challenge!!  The challenge is being sponsored by Ellen Hutson LLC (who just happens to be having a GINORMOUS sale in her store TODAY ONLY (March 17th) – 17% OFF all products in stock in honor of St. Patrick’s Day!), and they are offering up a very generous prize for the winner!  So I don’t know what you all are waiting for – get on over there and play!

That’s it for me today, friends!!  I’ll be spending the day in my craft room trying to get some stuff caught up.  I’m struggling of late with a bit of Vertigo, so I’m hoping that the room will stop spinning enough to let me get some work done1  Ha!!  Thanks so much for stopping by – I sure do appreciate it!

Your 'sky' is 'out of this world' cool! Love the stars and your clever idea to set the sentiment inside the clouds!
