Mr. & Mrs.

Hello everyone,
Today, I have another card to share with you all and I have created it for the Runway inspired challenge where we have to create a card based on the designer Oscar De La Renta's designs. He is a fabulous fashion designer and all his designed clothes are so gorgeous! Sadly though, he recently passed away. To honour his memory, the Runway challenge has asked us to choose from one of his Spring collection looks and create a card based on it. My card is inspired from the below picture :-

And here's my take on this inspiration :

Well as you can see, the first thing that attracted me to this look was the gorgeous lacy bottom half and I immediately had to recreate it ...At first my thought was to go for a die cut lace, but then I decided I wanted an stamped element on my card rather than a die cut one. I got out my  Justrite Floral fan Elements stamp set and picked out an border stamp from it and stamped and embossed it on vellum paper using Ranger Super Fine White Embossing powder and then fussy cut it and pleated the paper to create this look .
Then, I pulled out my Antique linen Distress Ink pad and smooshed it on my Craft Sheet and spritzed it with water liberally. I then ran my cream color cardstock in it. This gave a nice base color to my card and I went ahead and layered my embossed lace on the cardstock. On the upper half of the card,  I adhered a black card stock followed by a silver Washi tape. The frame is made from Mod Molds - Ornaments and painted using the Distress Spray Stain- Tarnished Brass and Platinum Stickles and I have adhered a Prima Zephyr paper on the back of it as I wanted to incorporate a little bit of the background from the inspiration picture in my card. I finished off my card with a die cut sentiment.
I'm also entering this card in the Pretty Paper Studio challenge where the theme this month is Embossing!

Here's a look at the stamp set I used for the lace :
 Hope this looong post has not put you to sleep :)
