Arrow IC05 - Red Skirt (Inspiration Challenge)

Inspiration Challenge #5 (IC05)

Today's inspiration comes from a skirt I recently bought for my DD. I fell in love with the skirt months ago, but they didn't have her size. A couple weeks ago I checked again and they had it -- yeah!

The skirt (see attached image below) looks hand-dyed with touches of gold on it. I just love the style and look.

I took my inspiration from the colors and gold touches. Here is my inspiration piece:

Now let's see what you are inspired to make. Feel free to translate the inspiration item into a card, a scrapbook page, or another project. Be inspired by the colors, the theme (middle-eastern or gypsy), or by a memory-jog you get!

Happy Stamping!

Talking Here's mine....

I just finished my card. The raspberry red that I used turned out to look more like hot pink. But I think the dress would be a lovely addition to your wardrobe.

Now I need to go back to hanging wallpaper ....not quite wallpaper. I'm putting up kraft paper in torn chunks, then will paint over for a sort of antique texture. Sometimes I think that I watch too much HGTV. Not!

I doubt this card will stand out in the gallery but I sure like it in real life! I think white embossing powder is as elegant as one can get.
Thanks for the inspiration Karen!
Hey, Garnet...how about a picture when you get that job done, it sounds really nice.

Here's my card

This is my first inspiration challenge. What fun! The picture looks more orange than red & IRL it's much darker. I sponged black ink over the white ep, so it really toned down the brightness.
