RIC #74

ETA: The winner of my $10 Starbucks giveaway was Lori (I have emailed you)!  Congrats Lori, and thank you to all of you, for your lovely comments!  It was fun hearing about your fav hot beverage.   

Hello, fashionistas!

This weeks Runway Inspired Challenge is pretty cool!  I love the dress she is wearing, and there are endless possibilities for inspiration.  I decided to keep it literal, as I haven't played with watercolors recently.

I brought out Wild Honey, and Rusty Hinge Distress inks, smooshing the color onto my craft sheet and painting it onto a piece of dampened watercolor paper.  I dried it, and reapplied the color a couple of times, and allowed it to dry before attempting to use it on my card.

I sliced it almost in half, and popped up both pieces, with foam tape, onto a white card base.  I took a sentiment from Wplus9's Hand Lettered Thanks, and stamped it right in the space with black ink.

I took a few clear rhinestones, and colored them with an orange Copic marker, before adhering them to the card.

I hope you can join us this week.  I know its busy with Christmas right around the corner.  Our awesome sponsor this week is Ellen Hutson, yeah!

Have a great one,
