Runway Inspired Challenge #37

    Hi again! I'm posting today to play along with the Runway Inspired Challenge #37. You can play along using the link (Here). The fashion this time comes from Fashion East and is quite fabulous. I just love those shoes :)

    And here's my card:

    I wanted to recreate the 'newsprint' and 'read all about it' feel of the image so I started with the obvious, newsprint. :) I also wanted to recreate the feeling of stacked lines running across the page like the words are on her dress. So, I used some newsprint snippets for the letters, the A Birdie Told Me Stamp set from Lawn Fawn and Hero Arts ink in Wet Cement. I also cut strips from some scraps of watercolor paper and ran across them with a Cherry Red Gelato and only smudged it a bit and a Black Soot distress marker and only blended it with a water brush a bit. I added the word bubbles with a bit of dimensional adhesive to have the words 'pop' out and all was done. But then I looked at it sideways and realized I missed an opportunity for doodling...and we just can't have that so I added the free handed lines around the outside and then called it done!
    I'm really happy with how it all came together and I hope you like it too!
    Thanks for stopping by!
