thank you for that

hey there!

i'm popping in with a fun post, sharing my entry for the most current runway inspired challenge! what a FUN photo!!

i love the houndstooth and bold, pops of color! so that's what i went with for my card! :)

so yeah, it didn't turn out exactly as i had envisioned, but it was close! :)
i used the jungle fever stamp set from create a smile stamps, and stamped the lily randomly on the watercolor paper. then i masked off the middle (see that rectangle frame? it's from your view!) and used pumice stone to add a light grey to most of the panel. when that was dry, i used my hero arts houndstooth background stamp and stamped in a similar warm gree for a subtle texture over the greyscale-d area! :)

then i lifted the maste up, and added bold and bright colors to the flowers and adhered the frame on top! :)
of course, i used thickers for the sentiment. :)

so that's my card! :)

hope it made you smile!
