Running a bit short on time this week, I thought I might not be able to play along, but the Runway Inspired #36 inspiration photo kept calling me so much that I just had to fit it in somehow!
I simply fell in love with the mood and color of the photo...so dark and mysterious with a hint of glamor and elegance...love it!
So that is where I took my card, focusing primarily on color and mood and went for the tone on tone effect. I approached the triangle pattern on the sweater by hand drawing that folk art fish pattern using a versamark pen and embossed it and applied a hint of purple ink over it .
In fact all the embossing is done using Zing khaki powder, but it was so hard photographing this card, if the colors got right , the embossing looked golden and vice versa!
For once the stray embossing powder is intentional!. I wanted it to be all over the card, so much so after I distressed the red cardstock with distress ink, I sprinkled some powder randomly all over the card and heat set it, but the irony is when you want it to stick it does not, so I just got a few stray powder around the fish !
Also I drew some bubbles and embossed with red embossing powder near the mouth of the fish.
