Any one who has visited my blog knows I have a love for one challenge blog above all others. Runway Inspired Challenge has the BEST design team in the business. Ok, maybe I am a little biased, but they showcase cards that make my jaw drop every time. The concept is based on a runway photo which is used to inspire a card. Clever eh?
Last week I won the challenge and the prize was a guest spot with the Design team. PINCH ME because I can't believe it. My dream has come true.
Here is what happened after I won.
For a solid 30 hours I stared at the dress that Jennifer Rzasa emailed me. Why? because I was choking under the pressure of making a card that would be in the company of these women.
Nothing seemed good enough.
I remembered THIS video.
and THEN a trip to Archiver's for some purple distress ink.
and THEN about 50 photos later,
I present you my card for the Runway Inspired Challenge #17 (said in a show announcer voice)...
right after these messages, JUST KIDDING!
Sorry, this card was removed for publication!
the folded rays on the bust and bodice of the dress --> so I have the rays in the background
the watercolored fabric--> so I have a watercolor background and the watercolored rose
the layers of pleats in the skirt of the dress--> I have popped up the rose with dimensionals
the black hair --> so I used a black sentiment
and of course, the colors in general
I will be also joining in on the next challenge as well...wish me luck. Maybe I can cut down on the choke time to 15 hours? ;)
