a card for Runway Inspired Challenge #3

Hi, friends,

 All of you visits here already knows 'Runway Inspired Challenge', I guess. I wanted to join in from their 1st time around. This time, I got the opportunity to make a card for RIC #3.

Here is the inspiration photo, Gareth Pugh 2012 S/S Paris collection.
photo source: fashionrogue.com

And here's my card.

 Since I loved the monochromatic look of this prêt-à-porter women's wear, I was going to make mono-toned card. But at last, I made this card to use almost of the colors in the photograph - not only the dress.
 I put the flower at the center like a model displayed clothes on a runway. And the image of the layered striped dress was placed its background. Made the background pattern like chevron to use grid pattern stamp. Added to draw the silver lines on it.
*The center piece was a little raised to use pop dots.

Stamp used:
Hero Arts: Enveloped pattern / S5507
        Art of the card: Le Journal / AC010

Other supplies:
Bazzill CS, Tsukineko Memento /  Tuxedo Black, Brilliance / Starlite Silver

Ranger Acrylic Dabber / Silver Hero Arts Hues / Dots
ribbon, color pencils, copic markers

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful weekend!
