Runway Inspired Challenge #48

BWS tips button
Hello gorgeous!
 
 
Sponsor: Ellen Hutson
When I saw the inspiration photo, I thought of this older stamp Large Flower Background
Since I don't use enough of that stamp, it seem fitting to get it out and play. I water-colored the images with TH Distress Inks ( Victorian Velvet, Antique Linen)  and then colored some more with Prisma color pencils. The sentiment is from SRM Stickers. I purposely left it as partially-colored (hope you didn't think that I was being sloppy--LOL).
MERCI
 Hope you check out my DT mates inspiring work (see here)!

This is an elegant representation of the inspiration piece...I, for one, really love the way you only colored a portion of it.

You have such a great eye, Virginia! The pattern on this background stamp perfectly matches the model's dress! I love all the soft watercoloring you did and your sentiment tag is beautiful! Love this 'artsy' card!

A stunning take on the photo - as usual, I like your card far better than the dress. Glad it doesn't come in my size - ha! This is just glorious, Virginia.
