Runway #44

Here's the photo for the Runway Inspired challenge.


Do you know the first thing I thought of when I saw the bodice of this lovely gown?  Tree branches.  And I went with my first thought.


The cut is a rather scary tree from Happy Hauntings.  To duplicate the color, I washed white cardstock with Spun Sugar Distress Ink.  I did the same with a strip of vellum to give the card a foggy "skirt".  I was going to leave off a sentiment, then decided that this one from PTI's Meadow Greens set would work.  I should have gone with my first thought about that, too, because now that I look at it on the screen, I'm not sure I like it.

Thanks for stopping by.  Life IS beautiful so enjoy!

  3. This has got to be the most creative interpretation of that dress out there. But, I really do see the inspiration.

  4. I totally thought of branches, too, Bobby, and love this image for the challenge! I like it with the sediment. I think it would have been too melancholy without it. Well done!!
