Runway inspiration

I've been following the Runway Inspired challenge since it began but I think this is the first time I've actually entered  I often find picture inspirations difficult but this one just jumped out at me and hit me with an idea.

The image made me think straight away of this Hero Arts/Basic Grey Floral Medley Background stamp which I've had a while but not yet inked up.  I stamped it onto water colour paper with embossing ink and  black glint powder.  I coloured it quickly with twinkling H2O's (Majestic blue, Blue Grass, African Jade and Ocean Wave) and then cut a portion out for the top of the card.  I added a Hero Arts simple birthday sentiment and then fussy cut a couple more small portions from the remaining background and pieced them into the other corners.


  1. This is just beautiful Tara! LOVE the stamp you used--so fun! Gorgeous CAS layout, too! HUGS to you! :)

  2. you have used the background stamp well! Your coloring is beautiful, and I love the white space in the middle! Glad you finally decided to join the Runway Inspired Challenge :)

  7. Hi Tara, I love how you've cut around the flowers and used the stamp in a different way, gorgeous 'Tara' colours too :0)
    Thanks for your comment... I'm excited and a little daunted by my new DT spot but I'm sure I'll be fine in time, still can't believe we'll see CAS cards in Craft Stamper!!
