Runway Inspired Challenge #54


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.

Our sponsor is Ellen Hutson, and the winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to her online store! So make sure to play along! 🙂
