Runway Inspired Challenge and Simon Says Stamp

I finally participated in a Runway Inspired Challenge (see graphic below)!

I was very excited by the concept when Jennifer first mentioned it, yet this is the first I've been able to coordinate a project for it. I was inspired by the colors and dots. (I had a difficult time determining the colors... I went with red, white and blue though, in retrospect, I believe it looks more like white, red or pink and gray?)

I was hoping the red in the background would show up better than it did. Starting with white cardstock, I used a Cover-a-Card stamp from Impression Obsession with Versamark ink and then Pure Poppy ink and did some clear embossing. The red looks a little pink-ish. I inked the background with Faded Denim and Chipped Sapphire to turn the panel blue.

The Paper Smooches sentiment was stamped on a double-ended banner die cut and wrapped with twine a-la-Lynn Mangan. Love her (prolific) CAS style!

I have tons of Cover-a-Card stamps that I really need to use more often

I've also entered this in the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge!

Thanks for peeking!
