Runaway Inspired #60

We have a new challenge for you at Runaway Inspired Challenge.

For this week's challenge, we have this fantastic jumper and skirt outfit.

 I really like the colour combination of grey and soft pink with a pop of yellow from the cute dog?  So the colours inspired me the most. Here is my take based on the colours.

Sending Happy Thoughts card

I did watercolour wash on my background using distress inks -Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry. I did a very soft colour wash stripes blending the colours. For the grey bit I die cut palm die from Hero Arts in light and dark grey and layered to give a shadow effect. The butterflies are from the new Altenew stamp set called Ori Kami. I also coloured the butterflies using Mustard Sees distress ink and cut them out. The sentiment is from Sketchy Cities America which I stamped on a watercolour strip of paper colour washed with Worn Lipstick distress ink. I then made banner ends and adhered using foam adhesives. Finally I have added some 4mm Aquamarine and Sparkly Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh as accents and Onyx 6mm sequins on the butterflies
