RIC #87


It is another Runway Inspired Challenge, yeah! Even after all of these years of playing along with this challenge, I never tire of the fabulous card inspiration I get from these glamorous outfits. What can you do with this one?

I had to use a bit of silver, as well as the blue/purple colors inspired by her skirt, on this card. Sadly, even with all the inks I own, I didn't have a decent Periwinkle color to match, so I improvised. You can watch what I did in the video below.

I started with a piece of watercolor cardstock, and inked up the Classic Fabric Design Background stamp from Hero Arts, using Ranger Distress Ink in Shaded Lilac, and Tumbled Glass. I then spritzed the stamped, and placed the cardstock down onto the stamp. I then allowed it to dry.

Using Avery Elle's Peonies stamp set, I stamped my flowers, using Versamark, onto watercolor paper and heat embossed them with Pewter powder from American Crafts. I trimmed them out, and placed them onto my water color panel. I also heat embossed my sentiment from that same stamp set.

To finish it, I added some Clear Sparkling sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, because, Sequins!!

Below is the video of how I created the card. I can't wait to see what you create with this challenge.


As always, thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Beautiful card Lindsay - love the way you have used the colours - unfortunately the video would not play for me - it said it was a private video :-) Love the clear sequins - they are the perfect finishing touch.
