Runway Inspired Challenge #15

It's Tuesday and that means a new challenge at the Runway Inspired Challenge blog. Check out this week's inspiration piece:


And here is my take on it:


I went clean and simple with my card, using the red and blue colour combo and a plaid background stamp from Bitty Backgrounds set by Unity Stamps.  The butterfly stamp comes from the Antique Flowers and Butterflies Framelits die set.
Make sure to check out the Runway Inspired Challenge blog for all the details on how to enter the challenge and our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp! And don't forget to pop by the other DT blogs to see their great creations:

Thanks for popping in!

Thank you!

Phew! Ever wonder where all the time goes? I sure do lately. Time seems to be flying I can't believe that it's already July! (gasp!) I haven't had much time for crafting and blogging lately but I’m finally starting to catch up. First of all I would like to thank to everyone for your emails, messages and all your support during Gallery Idol! It was a fantastic experience and I have had nothing but an amazing time getting to know all of my fellow finalists! They are such a great bunch of talented ladies! And huge congrats to the winner, Joscie Cutchens, her final card was just spectacular! 

Today, I have a card that I made some time ago using Jane’s Doodles Doodle Flowers stamp set:

Thank You

I used here a simple masking technique. The colouring of the flowers was a combination of markers and water colouring with ink.

Thanks for stopping by today!
