RIC #80

Hello, hello!

Spring is on the way!  That makes me so happy!  This outfit does too, seriously...it's so fun.  I immediately thought of watercolor, of course.  Here is the latest Runway Inspired Challenge:

I chose a couple of Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Evergreen Bough, Weathered Wood, Peacock Feathers, and Black Soot to create a background.  I also brought out the fabulous Vintage Roses set from Altenew for that pop of orange!

This past weekend I met up with my crafty gals, and got to use the MISTI stamping tool.  I have to admit to being quite skeptical about its usefulness, as I don't really mass produce many cards.  Well, those roses and leaves didn't stand a chance of being messed up with this tool...so I got on my phone, and one is making its way to me as of now.  HAHA!  Never say never, right?  So, after I was done layering my watercolors, I stamped a sentiment from the Get Well set by Avery Elle, with Versafine Onyx Black, heat embossing it in clear powder.

I stamped the roses using my friend Kirsty's MFT dye ink pads, and trimmed them out, layering the up onto my panel.  I attached it to a black card base, and adhered a few black pearls to complete it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you play along, I can't wait to see how you are inspired!

    And thanks again for helping me place the enamel dots on the card I was working on! I have to spend more time studying how you place yours because mine always look out of place.
