Runway Inspired...brushstrokes



One of my goals for 2014 is to participate in more card challenges. While reading blogs tonight I saw the Runway Inspired Challenge # 52. The dress is gorgeous, filmy with strokes of color.

So I dug out my Hero Arts Brustrokes stamp set which has seen far too little ink, and created this card. 

I used Brilliance Pearlescent inks in Yellow, Coral, Sky blue, and Poppy. 

To duplicate that soft  breezy feeling of the dress I stamped and embossed my sentiment in the Sky Blue ink on top of vellum then adhered it over the top of the stamped card.  




What do you think?  Can you see my inspiration in the dress?  Thanks for stopping by.
