I am in LOVE with the inspiration picture for this week's Runway Inspired Challenge. This girl looks so cute, yet fashionable, don't you think?



I love the layered t-shirts, the shoes that look like taxi cabs, the black and white stripes, and the short yellow skirt.  Here's what I came up with:


I used computer paper on top of the striped background so that you can see through it a bit- just like how you can see through the white shirt to the stripes beneath in the inspiration photo.  I tried vellum first, but it was wayyyy too translucent.

I think the DT outdid themselves this time...you will be impressed with their contributions! (well, hopefully you're always impressed, right?):

Nina Yang - Waffle Flower
Virginia Lu - Yes, Virginia...
Tasnim Ahmed - Cards & Bookmarks

Wida Miller - Beachorado

  4. So you used copy paper! Even though I mentioned it in my blog, I didn't actually try it...probably should have!

  14. WOW! I didn't know computer paper was thin enough to still be able to see the stripes! I thought it was vellum for sure!

  15. Ha! I noticed the translucency of the t-shirt too and wondered if copy paper would work - great card. Love the touch of fun with the pink beak!
