stripes and crepe paper (RIC, SSS)

Sneakin' in before the curtain closes over at Runway Inspired Challenge #47



What did I see?  Well, um, stripes.  And more stripes.  And if you take a gander up around her shoulders... some light and airy blooms.  Became this.


Not quite as in-your-face, but I think I captured the essence of the photo.  Anyhoo, I'm also playing at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where you are to get inky.  I did.  Where you ask? My flutterby is cut from white crepe paper which I used to mop up some super watered down Dylusions Ink (pink and yellow).  I love the watercolor effect it creates.

Thanks for looking.


Supplies for just because:
Paper:  white CS Neenah, CS Coredinations
Stamps: PTI, sentiment Studio g
Ink : Memento, Distress, Dylusions spray ink
Tools: die Clearly Besotted Stamps
Other: crepe paper

I love visiting your blog, I know it will be a treat. You think outside the box and come out with awesome designs. This one caught my eye first because it's for RIC, for which you should apply to the DT call. second I love the soft colors and that butterfly is amazing!
