Runway Inspired Challenge #53!! =)

Pin It

I'm stopping in to share the card I made for the Bold and BEAUTIFUL Runway Inspired # 53 Challenge Temperley London!!
OHHHH~LALALALA!! Isn't this just a striking dress!!?? I LOVE EVERYTHING about it and while looking through my stamps for inspiration I came across one of my Jenny Bowlin Stamps that I have never inked up and decided it would be the PERFECT fit for this challenge!!

I stamped it out three times onto some WPlus9 Oatmeal cardstock and then water colored each one using my Faber-Castell Aquarelle Water Color Pencils!! I left one image whole and then cut out the different layers on the other two images so that I could layer them altogether for a 3-D Image on my final card!! I thought it would be FUN to add some Sequins to the little dots on the outside edge of the image so I used some Flat 6mm Gold Kelly Purkey Sequins and attached them using some Gold Thread and Gold Seed Beads!! It took awhile sew them all on, but the end result was so worth the extra time!!  =)
I then die cut a Spellbinders Lattice Die for the bottom of my card base out of WPlus9 Black Cardstock and Stamped some water colored splotches to the background to tie it all together!! I actually used the back side of three different sized Circle Stamps and covered them with my water color then stamped with them!! I LOVE the simple but still water colored look!! After putting it all together though, I decided against adding the Die Cut Lattice and just stamped my sentient then I added a Vintage Turquoise Button to the center of my Flower and my card was finished!! I LOVE the way it turned out and I hope you like it too!!??

THANKS for stopping by and have a Fabulous VALENTINE'S DAY/Weekend!!
