We Had a Wonderful Time

Today I'm posting a card I made for the Runway Inspired challenge.  This was the inspiration runway photo:
And here is my inspired card:
I used Alcohol Inks for the swashes of color - applying them with the applicator onto glossy card stock in a kind of tapping motion rather than just swiping it across so it left a more interesting pattern.  Then I stamped the large and small circles from the Waltzingmouse Teeny Trees set using Versamark Onyx black.  This ink is a little more juicy and stamped well on the glossy card stock.  I dried the circle stampings with my heat gun so I wouldn't smudge it.  (the sort of smudge you see on the big circle happened just removing the stamp after stamping - the glossy card stock can be tricky to stamp on!)
I used the Small Madison Window die to mimic the woodwork behind the model on the runway - adhering it over the stampings with foam tape.  I layered the glossy panel to the white card stock base.
This great sentiment is from the Join Us set by Waltzingmouse.  This card is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4".  I will use this for a thank you card sent to someone with whom "we had a wonderful time!"

I'm also entering this in the Moxie Fab World Make Your Own Background challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today!
