Runway Inspired Challenge- Gareth Pugh Spring 2011


If you stopped by today to check out the Skipping Stones Design blog hop, click here or just scroll down.

Have you see the Runway Inspired Challenge blog?  It's a challenge blog dedicated to sparking inspiration through cutting edge fashion.  I have been wanting to play along the last couple weeks, but alas, it hasn't been in the cards, so to speak. :o) But this is the week, I had a chance to create a card based on this inspiration photo:

Here is my card:

I was inspired by the layers and criss-cross stripe action in the coat to cut several strips of striped patterned paper, which I adhered at a diagonal and overlapping.  The model is such a striking silhouette that I decided to represent her through a hero arts silhouette stamp.  The sentiment stamp is from Waltzingmouse Stamps- Tiny Trees set.  I added a little bling including a rock on the lady's necklace.  I finished the card with a little satin ribbon tied into a bow.

Want to play along?  The deadline is January 13 at 11:59 EST.  I am looking forward to checking out what everyone else has done with this amazing inspiration photo.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a great evening!
