I love the fashion-inspired challenges provided at the Runway Inspired Challenge and this (RIC79) must be my favorite. We were given a selection of Oscars looks from which to choose as our inspiration and I chose this one (among others; stay tuned for future posts and I'll come back here and link them):
When I look at this dress, it translates to the floral image from Butterfly Basics** (a set in the Occasions Catalog), Sahara Sand, Always Artichoke, Blush Blossom, florals, a bit of sparkle (see her ring?) and vellum.
I wanted the floral to be subtle, much like it is in Knightley's dress, so I inked it in Sahara Sand, as well.
The Blush Blossom blooms are simply punched using the 7/8-inch Scallop Circle punch, scrunched and sueded. The top layer is the soft sueded "inside" of a circle and it's mounted on the smooth "outside" of a circle. Double your card stock that way!
A Rhinestone Basic Jewel in each center is inspired by Knightley's lovely ring.
**The Butterfly Basics and Butterflies bundle (and individual items) are currently unavailable, but will be back in stock to order soon. The strike on the Pacific Coast docks will require weeks of work to sort out and these items will be on their way to SU! Headquarters soon. If you're interested in ordering them, please let me know and with no obligation to purchase, I'll notify you when they're available to order again.
