Another Card Inspired by Project Runway :)

So last week was the finale of this season of Project Runway!  I loved it!  The outcome was what I was hoping for too- I loved the collection that won!  The concept, the colors, the fringe!!  So cool!

I was inspired to create a couple of cards based on the winning collection but my attempt of stamping fringe did not work out the way I had hoped lol!  Here is one that did turn out though:

I cut a panel of watercolor paper to 4x 5.5".  I watercolored it with black paint, fading the color as I painted up.  I let it dry and then cut the notches at the top with a small hole punch.  I wrapped some orange twine around the top and ended where I wanted the tassel to hang.  I was envisioning this as the back of one of the dresses in the winning collection- wouldn't that be pretty along the shoulder blades?

I created a tassel out of the same twine and adhered it to the card.  I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed it with liquid platinum embossing powder.  It's acting as my jewelry along with the star sequins that matched the powder perfectly!  Hee Hee!

I loved Amanda this season and was a little sad that she lost but I didn't like her final collection as much as I thought I would...  Maybe because it seemed like a toned down version of her.  I'm tacky and loved the crazy quilting and stuff she did!  :)  Are you going to watch the All Star season that's starting this week?  You know I am!  I haven't peeked at who's coming back but I'm hoping some of my old favorites will be on again- it's fun to see what they're up to now, isn't it?

Thanks for stopping by today!

Without even reading the body of the post I know who your inspiration is for your card! I am a HUGE runway fan and have watched every season. This new one with the kids...not so sure about that one. Smiles, Elizabeth Price

Ok, so it's me again with a comment after reading your post! I loved the collection that won too. I also completely agree with you about Amanda and loved her crazy quilted stuff. I am looking forward to seeing Chris March on the All Stars. Smiles again, Ebeth

Love that great tassel and the black watercoloring, so pretty! I was rooting for Amanda too! I liked her collection, not necessarily her best but I still thought she should have won!
