Runway Inspired Challenge #14 and CAS-ual Fridays #58


Check out the current inspiration for the Runway Inspired Challenge #14 that ends tomorrow:



My plantar fasciatis is acting up just looking at this shoe:)  I do love the colors, the shine from the patent leather and how it's angular yet feminine at the same time.  Using cardstock in similar colors, an acetate panel for some shine, a chevron embossing folder for some angles and a pretty butterfly this is what I came up with:


Materials Used:  Hero Arts butterfly and sentiment, Papertrey ink cs, Stampin' Up/Sizzix embossing folder, Michael's pearl, Signo white gel pen

I know it's cutting it close but I'm also entering this in CAS-ual Fridays challenge #58 that ends today at noon EST:

Temps are headed back in the 90's over the next few days and I need to get outside and do some yardwork before I have another excuse not to do it :)

Look out, Ted Gunn! This card is red-carpet material, for sure! Love the texture, the shine (brilliant idea to use acetate this way) and colors.

Those shoes are hurting me beyond words, so thank goodness for your beautiful card! That is one of my fav butterflies!

Lisa said...

I giggled at your foot comment :) Really - What person could wear those? Let alone actually walking in them!!
Your card is lovely tho. I really like that big, bold sentiment you used!
Stay cool, my friend! My temp says 93, but it feels way hotter and throw in some humidity-it's horrible out!! Hope you get some reprieve soon :)

Love this card, Robin! The fashionable inspiration took you to a wonderful creative place. I'm a flats loving woman too; I'm sure I'd develop a nosebleed from the altitude with those shoes. I'm all for comfort rather than style.
