Runway Inspired Challenge - #80

Hello folks,

Welcome to the new Runway Inspired Challenge - Nonoo

I absolutely LOVE the abstract watercolour pattern on the dress. Love the splash of orange. Here is my take on the Nonoo dress.

Have a Fabulous Day1

I started off with watercolour paper. I smooshed some Cracked Pistachio distress ink on the watercolour paper in two layers. Then I smooshed Black Soot distress ink randomly making sure some of the Cracked Pistachio is seen as well. Then I mixed Spiced Marmalade with watercolour brush and spattered some orange colour. That is my background.

For the focal pint, I die cut a tag using Wplus9 tag and tied orange twine to it. The butterfly is from Hero Arts Butterflies Stamp and Cut. I simply stamped the butterfly on watercolour paper and watercoloured using the Cracked Pistachio, Black Soot and Spiced Marmalade distress ink,  I then die cut the butterfly out. The body of the butterfly is die cut using black felt. I adhered the butterfly on the tag, stamped the sentiment and smaller butterflies also from the same stamp set from Hero Arts. Here is closeup of the butterfly.

I am pretty happy with the way my card turned out especially the background and butterfly.
Oh I love for you see what the Runway Inspired Design Teams projects for this challenge. Each of them have rocked it. Check it out at Runway Inspired Challenge Blog - Nonoo.
