Runway Inspired Challenge


Once again, I succumb to create yet another Runway Inspired Challenge card. "Resist is futile"!
As Yoda would say to me: "How weak you are!" (LOL)
sending you lots of hugs
 The inking in this card are mostly done with alcohol inks. I find it easiest to achieve the color combo I want with the variations of alcohol inks. I stamped the images from these set Real FlowersEarth Flowers, and Truly Appreciated (sentiment) with distress inks for more defined details.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
