Runway H2Ocolor Card

Hello Readers,

For this evening I am playing along with Runway Inspired Challenge and wow do they have a beautiful and inspirational photo featuring a design from Emilio de la Morena . I had an opportunity to check out his website and see more of his work; if you have a moment check it out such pretty collections. Here is my card for today! Enjoy!!

Watercolor just seemed like the natural medium to use. Soft flowing color
with an emphasis on blue.

Entering Challenge:
Runway Inspired Challenge RIC#93

The sentiment color was taken from her shoes but it seemed a bit stark to use only black..
Adding the white shadow lightens up the sentiment and matches nicely with the rest of the design.
I honestly didn't think this card was going to turn out. I guess you don't know until you try, right? I die cut the 'waves' on heavy CS then spray mounted it on the H2O paper and went to work hoping it would not bleed through between the lines. And behold success!!

Even though our model doesn't have a lick of white on her she is surrounded by a ton of white. I thought it needed to be reflected on the card. I think the white gives it an airy quality to the design. These colors were so fun to work with by using my Distress Markers and water it all flowed nicely but stayed put in their little compartments. Love it!!

I am done bombarding you this evening but I just got on a roll. Take care and thank you again for taking time out of your busy day to spend with me. Any comments you have will be appreciated. Thanks again and see you soon.

All the best,

I'm happy to hear that the masking worked with watercolor- great job! I also love how you incorporated white to reflect the background of the inspiration photo. Thanks so much for joining us on the Runway!
