Runway Inspired Challenge #16

Jen and the team’s latest Runway Inspired Challenge!

A lot of literal ideas from the outfit were incorporated in the card, such as the colors (brighter in real life!) and very geometric patterns.  The partially filled in letters allude to the partically covered shoes.  The thing I think is most interesting about the outfit is that there is a lot going on, giving it a very 3 dimensional feel, but the enitre outfit, even the accessories, are perfectly 2 dimensional.  I decided that on the card I would follow suit and create illusions of layers, but stay strickly 2 dimensional.  Except for the deliberately untexutred base, there are NO LAYERS AT ALL–only ink.  It was definitely scary at times knowing if a mistake it couldn’t later be covered up!

I used materials I had on hand–Studio G and Sharpie.

My awesome dad made the pottery, and the air plant is from here. : )

Can’t wait to give this card to my friend Kelly, she rocks!
