Runway Inspired #32

Hello!

I'm bringing you a card that was a bit of an experiment in colour, shine, and glitter.
This card was made in response to Runway Inspired Challenge #32 where this outfit was the inspiration. I think I need to add this jumper to my wardrobe, it would probably be a great conversation starter. :-)
 
I was struck by that question mark and the shiny red skirt. I immediately thought of embossing black on black and a red shiny ribbon. The only problem with that was that I don't own any red satin ribbon, LOL! And black on black wasn't quite the look I had in my head.  Sooo, what did I do? I embossed clear "psychedelic" glitter onto black (which happens to be almost impossible to photograph). I embossed red glitter onto the red panel - shiny and sparkley all at the same time (and also impossible to photograph, argh!).  To finish off I added some black rhinestones to the flowers. The stamps are Simon Says Stamp Flower Friend. The dies are PTI Mat Stack #6.

Thanks for coming to visit.

This is gorgeous, you always create fabulous cards for this challenge. I am afraid of this one for some reason.

You always do such a fantastic job with the RICs, Michelle, and this is no exception. I totally get the shiney, sparkley, glittery fabness of it, but I know it is even more stunning IRL!!

Fantastic take on the outfit, Michelle! I think you managed to photograph the glitter very well, and the look is super cool :)

Very cool look Michelle! I can see all the sparkle but I understand how much it must sparkle in real life. :)

Way to improvise and hit the nail on the head! When I scrolled down to see the outfit I thought, "Michelle's definitely captured it!"
