Runway Inspired Challenge #34

Hello Gorgeous!!
It's time for Runway Inspired Challenge! Isn't this photo stunning?
When I saw the photo, I was so tempted to stamp the design, but then I decided to use the Daisy Craft Die from Simon Says Stamps instead. The sentiment "You are so loved" is from Loving Thoughts (CAS-ual Fridays Stamps).
you are so loved
I cut out a few black and white daisies and arranged them accordingly like a puzzle. Because the diecut images are so delicate, I glued them directly to the paper and kept the surface rather flat.

 And if you wonder why I used red? Why, the model's lips are red! Also, in Asian culture, red is the lucky color, so I had to add red into the design. There is no right or wrong way to use the colors, it's really just a personal taste/choice! I can't wait to see how you interpret this runway photo!

Please check out my amazing team mates' work. I know you will be immensely inspired!

I will be back later today for Day 2's CAS-ual Fridays Stamps new release!

I KNEW the touch of red was from her lipstick! Love the layered die cut flowers! So fab, Virginia!

This is really pretty, V! Love the addition of the red - OF COURSE it was for her lipstick! :) Wonderful card, my friend!

So beautiful, Virginia! I love the added red pearl heart.

Virginia this is gorgeous, you mimicked the design or her dress perfectly and the red for her lipstick--how 'lucky', beautiful!

You know how much I love this card! The arrangement of the die cuts is absolutely perfect! and the red (including the cute little heart!) makes this card even more gorgeous!

Kelly Griglione said...

What a stunning card, Virginia!! Love how it's flat, but it has so much dimension from the delicate die cuts overlapping. My favorite, aside from the red (!), is the little black flower going over the frame on the left!
