RIC #29

This weeks runway inspired challenge has again a great inspiration photo:

And here is my take on it:

The pink stamps are my own (see below , the sentiment is  a combo of Clearly Wordsworth and Hero Arts - Essential Messages (Cl371). I used Washi tape at the bottom, which I cut in half and splattered some blue/grey distress ink on top. I m very happy with the result, my husband was not thrilled, but my son liked it, yeahhh!

And here is my inspiraton:
This card by Susan 

Tasnim, who reminded me that I can make my own stamps - I have done that several times before, for example on this card, where I made myself that background stamp:

And here is a photo of some of my home made stamps using left over rubber from stamp sheets or craft foam, which also works great.

I hope you enjoyed my little blog today - have a great day and as always your comments are greatly appreciated. I had to turn on comment moderation, as I got hit with the first spam comment. I hope you understand.

So creative, Cornelia. Like your technique, the card is so perfect for the challenge. Love it. :-)

Such creativity! Also enjoy how your colors/elements are opposite the inspiration photo ... instead of beige, low, stacked boxes, you have high pink ones with a beige sentiment. Works really well!

Von diesen beiden Karten bin ich sehr begeistert! Eine super Idee wie du die Gummireste als so ganz einfache Stempelformen verwendet hast!!
Was dabei herauskam ist genial!
Die erste Karte mit den Farbspritzern hat es mir besonders angetan!!

Die zwei Karten finde ich total fantastisch! Was man so alles aus den Gummiresten machen kann ist erstaunlich!
Außerdem bin ich dir noch eine Antwort schuldig: der Prägefolder mit den zarten Blütenzweigen ist von "Nellies Choice" (www.nellies-choice.com).
