Runway Inspired #67Posted: September 2, 2014 Filed under: Floral Applique | Tags: Penny Black stamps, Ranger Distress stains 4 Comments
I have been wanting to play along with the Runway Inspired Challenge for a while so today I took a look at their new inspiration and came up with this little square card. The floral panel is clear heat embossing watercoloured with distress stains and the checked black and white mat I made with a few repetitions of the canvas stamp from the ‘Textures’ set. I matted the floral panel in black and was not planning to mat the canvas panel but the seamstress in me won over the CAS stamper. I was taught by my mother, my aunt, my great aunt and my fashion & design teacher in highschool to finish borders and seams properly. The canvas panel looked more “finished” with its own black mat. If you count the photo corners as a layer, this card has six layers – something you rarely see from me! (it might just be a record, Lindsey!)
Layers or not the design teams samples on the Runway Inspired Challenge blog are diverse and beautiful. Go and take a look.

Beautiful! I thought of you when I made my RIC entry, which will be on my blog tomorrow – you’ll see why – I used a stamp that I bought after seeing you use it!
Heather, that is exquisite…I had to look up the PB reference to prove to myself it was actually a stamp and not stitched! 🙂 Perfectly watercoloured!!!
Brilliant colors and fabulous design. I really like the finishing photo corners too. TFS
The photo corners and lack of sentiment make it a little art piece! Lovely card 🙂 Thanks so much for joining us on the Runway!
