Good morning!  Today there is a lovely new inspiration up at the Runway Inspired Challenge.  Sadly, it's Wida's last challenge, and I wanted to wish her a sweet goodbye!  Please check out my post over on the challenge blog, and make sure to click on over to Wida's blog to see what she made!

My project was just begging to be watercolored, so I went the artsy fartsy route :)


I die cut the tag, and stamped the bells in some grey ink.  I wasn't sure if painting on top of it would make the ink bleed, so I stamped again directly on top with VersaMark, then heat set some clear embossing powder on top.  It looks very pretty in person!  I die cut the little label, stamped the sentiment in black, then followed the steps to stamp the bell (to line up with the one on the tag).

Next, I quickly watercolored the whole thing, making sure to add some fun splatter.  The rest is pretty self-explanatory :)

That's it for me today.  I hope you choose to play along!
