a new challenge. more washi tape. another quick card. while surfing over spring break, i stumbled onto the runway inspired challenge blog, with fashion inspiration pics straight from the runway. fashion plus stamping? count me in! i love creating cards from an inspiration piece - pulling colors, repeating patterns, getting a similar overall look. the current runway inspired challenge is from the nanette lepore fall 2012 show and, as soon as i saw it, i knew i had to make time to play. i originally thought i was going to create a chevron card because of the shirt, but then i spied the right colors and patterns in my washi tape stash and they won me over. i particularly love that you can see the card stock through the tapes. the gray and silver patterns are similar to the stitching in the chevrons and, of course, the gold is for the skirt. the polka dots actually needed a little help living up to the skirt, which i found in a bit of shiny gold thread. wrapped around the washi, it's the perfect touch of shimmer and shine! finally, the sentiment from pti's mixed messages practically jumped onto the card, in black to mirror the shoes. the result is just what i wanted. trendy, feminine, cool - absolutely fabulous!
