Runway inspired Challenge #6


My second attempt at trying a challenge. This time it was based on a look from a designer on a catwalk (runway). So this was the look we had to make our card inspired by and the challenge blog can be found here.

So this what I came up with:

The main heart was made by cutting and sticking little squares (mosaic) based on colours from the top which I then die cut. I then used crackle accents on top to give it a shiny look like the top. I then wrapped some shiny red embroidery thread linked through a button which matches the colour of her jean shorts. The red heart has a pattern stamp with pearl perfect pearls on top to make it look like cuffs. The little shiny black heart matches her shoes (again with crackle accents on).

February sketch challenge with Bombshell stamps

So here’s what I came up with for the February sketch challenge on the Bombshell Stamps blog.


I used the stamp pack #2301 Man’s Ruin which I bought direct from the Bombshell shop in the US during a Christmas promotion last year. I decided to buy these stamps as I am a big fan of Burlesque and have a thing for skull and crossbones 😉 so these stamps were perfect for me!
I tried to make the main stamped picture look like a playing card with broken hearts instead of classic playing card heart. I then used a note punch, punched 3 from card and stuck them together to make it more like chip board. I then used glossy accents to make them look shiny.
You can’t really see it well in the photo but the text ‘Man’s Ruin’ is mounted on foam stickers on to black sparkly paper. The red heart (made from a heart punch) was punched 3 times and stuck together like the black notes notes but this time I used crackle accents which looks like the heart is breaking!
This is my first try at making a card from a sketch. It was quite a challenge I’ll ya’ that, but an enjoyable one!
