Runway Inspired CTS #73

Thanks for stopping by! Today I am sharing my take on the fun challenge over at CAS(e) this Sketch.  The challenge, if you choose to except it, is to get inspired by the runway challenge and mix it with the sketch challenge.  I did choose to except the challenge, and I'm ready to share what I came up with...

The challenge..

So WOW!  You know when you have a plan in your head, but then when you sit down to create that plan, how it never comes out the way you planned?!?  Well throw that thought out the window, cause my hands actually listened to my head and it came out just right!  Well, as far as my opinion goes!  Wink!  Wink!  I started with deciding on what flower set I wanted to use.  Of course, it was stippled blossoms.  Just perfect for layering.  My flowers were stamped with a rolling rub off technique (as I like to call it!)  I stamped the whole flower in real red, rolled the edges to remove some of the ink, then rolled the edge in tangerine tango ink.  I then stamped the layered stamp on top in basic black.  When you stamp this flower, it leaves a little white space, well I didn't want that, I wanted to add in some blue.  So I took my tempting turquoise pen and colored it in.

I also didn't want start white to be the background.  I used my mosaic embossing folder, inked it up in black and then ran my white paper thru my big shot.  I then, stamped in black the stripped mosaic stamp from the full set, punched and layered, added a black candy dot (you can never have to much candy!!) to the center of three and I my background was complete.
I really hope you have enjoyed my take on the Runway challenged mixed with the CASE(e) This Sketch.  I really had fun creating it!
