Runway Inspired Challenge # 28

It is time for another challenge from the Runway! Here is this week’s inspiration photo:
Awesome dress, don’t you agree? Love the flow and the look of transparency of the fabric! When I saw this, my first thought was to use vellum! and so I did, I used Vellum circles and made this card:
I chose a cloud and four different colored vellum sheets, and ran them through my Xyron machine to apply even adhesive on the back. I then punched out circles of various sizes and arranged them randomly all over the card front. I stamped the sentiment on the card base with cocoa ink before placing a light pink circle on top. This way there is no risk of the ink getting smudged (from my experience, dye ink almost never dries on vellum!).
Here is a picture of the vellum papers that I have used, notice the clouds one? it looks pretty cool over dark paper.
This week’s sponsor is Avery Elle! So make sure to play along for a chance to win a $20 gift card to their online store!
