A new inspiration is up at Runway Inspired Challenge.
Even though the outfit is quite striking, it was the background that inspired me.
I made a couple of cards using the gorgeous pool color as the focal point, but wasn’t too happy with them. Then things turned a bit interesting as I spotted a wood veneer house lying on my work-station from a previous project. Here is what I came up with:
If you have seen the animated movie “Up” you will recognize this scene immediately, if you haven’t, then it is a great movie to watch!
Using a sponge applicator, I applied Stampin’Up! ink Pool Party to create the sky. The balloons are small dots of liquid applique which were heated with a heat gun to puff them up. The wood veneer house is from Michaels. And if you have been around my blog for some time, you have already guessed that I made the sentiment using my DYMO label maker.
I spent a long time fumbling with the sentiment strip; where to put it, whether to put it or not, whether to write out the sentiment, and where. In the end I stuck it behind the house like a banner. What do you think? Does it work?
This week we have a guest designer! To find out who it is, and to see the amazing interpretations from the rest of the design team, stop by the Runway Inspired Challenge.
