Well, this morning I just wanted to have a play and make something for a challenge rather than one for my design team roles.
I saw the new challenge at AAA Cards which is to create a card inspired by the fashions on the Oscar red carpet. So, after a little internet search I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
My card is inspired by a dress I loved when I saw it a few years ago...little did I realise it was from 2003! So, here's my card, I'm a bit disappointed that the camera didn't pick up just how sparkly this is in real life...
And here's the gorgeous dress that inspired me, Jennifer Lopez's Valentino gown...
I took my inspiration from the diagonal sweep of the dress. I stamped some flowers, leaves and flourishes in VersaMark ink and heat embossed in clear. I then fussy cut around the images to create the edge to echo the design of the dress. I adhered the panel to a card base and stamped the sentiment in mint pigment ink. I finished off by adding some glitter to the outline of the images and the flourishes, and a few gemstones.
