ric#71 - In Memory of Oscar de la Renta

Hey there,

I am learning blogging & playing along challenges. It takes up so much time but at the end of the day it is making me very happy! (Please visit my FB page to see my journey before blogland!).

Today, i am playing along Runway Inspired Challenge. It is in the memory of Oscar de la Renta, an extremely talented and influential designer who passed away recently. The RIC team has decided to use his latest collection for inspiration.

Here is my inspiration image:

...and my take on it!

I tried to recreate that faded floral background by stamping random dots in various inks(i used back of the small stamps for stamping dots). I stamped feathers (PTI) in memento luxe - espresso truffle & added some shading with tombow markers.


...a close up!

 The 'happy' stamp is from pti which i stamped thrice on scrap paper & trimmed it. I touched the edges of panel with black soot distress ink and mounted with foam tape. Added three strips to replicate upper part of dress. I finished it off with a sentiment from Avery Elle's Laurels set - embossed on vellum- coloured with tombow markers .

Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you like my interpretation! Please leave a comment it means a lot - A LOT - to me...:). Happy crafting!
