with sympathy (RIC)

ETA:  Ha!  Typical me.  Missed the deadline but here it is anyhoo.

Card to share for the Runway Inspired Challenge #44.  It's been too long since I played over there and this photo spoke to me with its wispy branches and natural makeup.


This translated to this card.


Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink with a hint of a moon in Shaded Lilac.  A portion of a Crafter's Workshop mask.  And the serenity of the scene spoke sympathy to me.  On vellum in a nod to the sheer layers of the gown.

Thanks for visiting.


Supplies with sympathy:
Paper: cardbase TPC, vellum
Stamps:  sentiment PTI
Ink: Distress, StazOn
Tools: mask TCW
Other:

Aw, shame you missed the deadline, this would have been a definite contender! Love the strong background colours, then the soft vellum banner.

*Gasp!* This is stunning!! I love the dark, dark blue with the moonlight just barely peeking through the night. It's spectacular! I have this mask and now I know exactly what I'm going to try next time I get a moment in the craft room! Awesome inspiration, Maria! Thank you!
