RIC53 - Glory to the Newborn King!


This week's Runway Inspired Challenge was perfectly timed - it arrived on the same day as this beautiful stained glass angel die from Die-Versions.



I focused on the 'medallion' right in the centre above the waistline of the dress - it has some beautiful turquoise as well as the magenta and gold.

Inlaying all those little pieces was a little fussy, so I don't think this will end up being mass-produced as a Church Christmas card! I'll have to find a simpler way to use this beautiful die again!

ETA (February 18): This card was a winner!

Ardyth, this is one amazing card! What an intricate die, and re-inserting all those little bits and pieces was so worth the effort. Love that sentiment too - great font. Have a great weekend. Bev

Hi Ardyth,
A gorgeous card well worth the effort of the fussy inlay work. In thinking of a simpler way to mass produce something similar I think if you coloured vellum and place the outline on top it would work. The colours might not be as rich as the ones you chose here, but it could give a light and airy feel to the card.
