Good morning!  I am in LOVE with the dress in this week's inspiration for the Runway Inspired Challenge.  I wish I owned it...I would wear it to dinner with my husband tonight (it's our 8th anniversary!! woohoo!)


source: style.com

I focused on the soft colors that are scattered on her dress.  I was so excited to use one of my new stencils- no, I didn't buy them- Emily (who often plays along with RIC) made them and was kind enough to send them to me!  Thanks so much Emily!!

I don't have embossing paste yet, so I used the stencil with regular acrylic paint.  I first laid down white, then used an old gift card (real high-tech tool, eh?) to swirl on some pastel colors, focusing on the lower half of the card.  Things sure got messy, and I wasn't confident that it worked until I pulled off the stencil. Success!!


(I hope you don't mind that my cards have been more artsy recently!)


There is a lot of amazing inspiration from my team today...
