Runway Inspired Challenge #68

Hey everyone,
I have a new Runway Inspired Challenge for you to play along.
This time it is not a fashion clothing but a shoe! 
How cool is this shoe? I love the texture of the cork and the argyle design. Inspired by them, I created my card. Here it is!
Happy Birthday shoe card
I have used PTI’s A Little Argyle background stamp set to stamp and white heat emboss my background on watercolour paper. Then I randomly coloured the diamonds with colours from the shoe using Peerless watercolour. I loved a lot of white space and pop of blue, red and brown colours.
Then I trimmed a cork paper for the centre panel. The shoes are from Clearly Besotted’s Stepping Out stamp set. I simply black heat embossed the shoes, watercoloured and cut them out. I have layered them using foam on one. The sentiment is also from Clearly Besotted Stamps called Basic Banner. The gorgeous Sparkly Clear sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh.

Happy Birthday flat 1
Pretty happy with the how my card turned out as this was not what I planned to make when I sat to craft.

Check out Runaway Inspired Challenge Blog to see how the rest of the designers interpreted the challenge. Now it is your turn to play along. Cannot wait to see what you do 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!
