Runway Inspired Challenge #41

 

Isn't this just the most incredible dress and very inspiring it was.

My inspiration was all the pretty pink flowers on the dark background.  Not sure if it's black or deep purple so went for black.  Used a technique called "Joseph's Coat"  (Tutorial from Splitcoaststampers HERE) The background was made by sponging Distress inks onto white card and then cutting out the Memory Box butterfly.  I stamped a small flower from a studio g set in Versamark and clear embossed.  Then sponged Black Soot distress ink over.  I dry embossed my white panel and then layered it onto pink card before adding to the black card base.  The sentiment (Kaisercraft) was stamped onto white card and cut in a banner shaped, edged in black and added to the card.  Finished the butterfly with some black gems.

Also entered into the following challenge
Flutterby Wednesday ~ Anything with Wings

Hope your week is going well.  I've been home for most of the day with a dreadful cough.  Went to work, but ended up coming home and having a nap.  Coughing quite a bit and that's quite draining.
