Woohoo! You know how much I love Runway Inspired Challenge days!! :)

Today we have an incredible inspiration photo, and an incredible sponsor.  First, the challenge pic:




I love the fun doodled background, so I wanted to do something similar on my card.  With a pencil, I sketched out the Boston skyline (I ADORE Boston!), then painted it in with watercolor.  I wasn't being too careful with staying in the lines- I wanted it to stay playful.  Next, I used a fine tipped pen (my Micron) to draw in the details...no ruler necessary! Again, the wiggly lines and imperfections give it extra charm :)




Did you notice the awesome FLAIR on my card?!  Well, the sponsor for this challenge is my friend Joscelyne, aka Bossy Joscie.  

The rest of the DT used her flair too- I can't wait for you to see what they created!

Tasnim Ahmed - Cards & Bookmarks
Nina Yang - Waffle Flower
Virginia Lu--Yes, Virginia...
Laura Bassen - Doublestick Heaven
Wida Miller- Beachorado
Pamela - miao

Are you inspired? Please play along!

  16. Well, it must be nice to just be able to sketch your own background like this; and then do such an amazing and playful job! The sweetness of the band at the bottom with the darling flair is spot on.
