You look marvelous, Darling!

Today, I'm taking my first Runway Inspired Challenge (#23). This is the inspiration photo:

And here's my take on the challenge...

There are so many ways to go with this inspiration, but the contrast of black, white and red together with glossy circles and those dark shades are what caught my eye! And since, the eyeglasses stamps and dies I illustrated for my Whimsical Wishes and Moka Collection lines were part of this week's release at Taylored Expressions, I had to spotlight the shades. 

I stamped and heat embossed the circular pattern using the big Circles background stamp, black Versafine ink and detail clear embossing powder. I was totally inspired by a few of the RIC design team members and created a circular negative die cut. I heat embossed the red card stock to give it gloss. But really, it's all about the shades. I printed a transparent black with my laser printer on transparency film and cut to fit behind these darling die cut glasses from the Spectacles Dies set. If you look closely, these lenses have as many fingerprints as the ones I always wear on the top of my head! I'm sure the models shades are spotless (and expensive!).

Almost forgot...I stamped and heat embossed the 'One of a Kind' sentiment and a pair of glasses from Spectacular! to create a unique signature on the back of my card.

Have a wonderful weekend!
