hello friend

hello and good morning!
today i have a card to share that i made for the most recent runway inspired challenge

i think the greys/silvers are so elegant and pretty! and let's face it, i'm sucker for anything grey!

i used the inspiration photo pretty literally though, and went for a more modern look!

i used the new mama elephant set - origami. LOOOOVE this set!!! so so so amazing! i used my inktense watercolor pencils to color in the images; keeping it darker along the 'folds' of the images. i think it's super fun! then i colored the heart in with a peachy color for just a subtle little addition of color! 

the heart was also covered in the wink of stella pen and then i added a coat of glossy accents to it!
i am really digging the patterned paper too! the white hexagon panel is popped up over the super awesome arrows (that looks a little origami to me! bonus!) to mimic the sharp contrasted lighting in the picture! so fun!! and also - so literal! lol!

so that's it!
it's another warm day here (almost 80!) - crazy i know, since most of the country is still getting snow! wish i could send some of this warm weather your way!
