Runway Inspired Challenge #52

Did I just love the inspiration photo for this weeks Runway Inspired Challenge! It is currently -25 celsius in Montreal and it isn't looking to get warmer anytime soon! This dress made me dream, dream, dream of a beautiful summer day on a terrace in Old Montreal.  The pastel colours were my starting point and I decided to play a little with watercolour.  I am always nervous with the freehand watercolour effect but I am really pleased with the way it turned out!

Products used:

Stamp - Papertrey Ink
Distress watercolour markers - Picked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers and Mustard Seed
Mr. Huey's for the "splatters" on the background
Watercolour paper for card base and mat
Hero Arts green layering paper
Versafine Black ink

Thanks for taking the time!
