Runway Inspired RIC#40: Stella McCartney

This colour combo is so not my usual so I thought it was perfect to challenge myself. 

I pressed some Studio Calico Hearts and Arrows wood veneers into ink - Fresh red currant and mango and since I didn't have a bright enough yellow, used some dollar store pearlescent paint.  I added some Rock Candy Stickles for a little shine.
I made a little mistake on the sentiment - I meant to stamp the U in Hero Arts mid tone wet cement and then layer the rest in Versafine Black Onyx over top but stamped the U in black first so reworked the whole thing a bit.  Oops!  To get the gray part all in one line, I covered some of the words with washi tape before stamping into the ink pad and then removing it to stamp on the card.  This is another way of masking sentiments.  (The sentiment is configured in a stacked row so I had to get creative unless I wanted to cut it apart ...)

Paper: Staples 110lb white
Stamps: PTI Live Love Life
Supplies: Versafine Black Onyx; Fresh red currant, mango; Hero Arts mid tone wet cement
Misc: Studio Calico Hearts and Arrows wood veneers, dollar store yellow paint, Glossy Accents


My next card also features Live Love Life from PTI's uber talented Maile Belles:
I stamped the sentiment repeatedly using Hero Arts mid tone wet cement and Versafine Black Onyx before adding the hearts in red currant, mango and harvest Fresh inks.

These are both fabulous Cara! Love the cute glittered wooden hearts on the first, it's like they're floating out of that loved-up U! Second one is fab too but the first is my favourite!

Thanks for the lovely comment you left on my blog, and the heads-up about CASology too - I'd have never known to link up to the challenge without you! :-)
