Runway challenge #91

Hi there!

Another AMAZING dress on the runway to inspire us...

Source: style .com


After I carefully took a look at the beautiful inspiration Anita has provided at this week's Muse card club, I couldn't help to notice that the dress, and Anita's card share a few common elements!

Lucky coincidence!

This is Anita's inspiration:


                                                     

See... soft pastels, black accents!

For my card this week I relied on my Silhouette to help me out 100% ! (and of course my printer ;)

I played with functions I haven't really explored to it's full potential, like the fill option and using my sketch pens.

I focused on the pastel flowers, but just could not work that red accent successfully ... instead decided to incorporate the black outlines.

I am not explaining all the steps in completing the Silhouette design, because it's a little technical, and I am not sure how many readers will be interested. I you really want to know... I will be glad to explain. I will point you in the direction of the on line store to the cutting file I worked with to create my card { Design ID #30649  }

Tilted the top panel ... well just because ! 





Edited to add... forgot to share the sentiment!




just for you free sentiment




Thanks for looking!

You have a fab eye for spotting good challenge combos, Hannelie. I love your take on my card and the dress design, so clever. And the slightly offset panel makes the black border really interesting with those angles.
Thanks so much for playing at Muse this week, Anita x
