People who know me know I have zero interest in fashion, and couldn't name a designer if my life depended on it. I tend to look at runway images as so much WTH?!?! I've known about the Runway Inspired Challenge for some time, but it just wasn't on my radar much. I might have played once prior to this.
When I saw the current Runway Challenge:
I actually had an idea. And no, I've never heard of the designer. I am a walking Land's End and L.L.Bean catalog advertisement. Although I will say this is one of the more conservative, and (in my opinion) wearable things I've seen lately.
Here's my card that was inspired by the image, then I'll explain:
The layers in her skirt gave me the idea for scalloped layers, and the pattern made me think of this piece of SU paper I now have in my Heaplet, the result of the Card Stock Re-Org. The ribbon is there as a divider between the scalloped layers and the white, which was so white I had to add some scored lines to make the twitching stop. Afterwards, I realized what a happy accident that was, as her top has vertical lines on it. :)
For the sentiment, I broke out my Simon Says Stamp Tiny Tags stamps and dies and cut into another of the Heaplet papers to make the two blue flags. The brad is from forever ago when I bought them by the hundreds because they match SU card stock.
Let this be a lesson to you: Just because you live in jeans and polo shirts doesn't mean you can't look at fashion to get fun ideas for cards. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
