Feeling Blue on the Runway!

Well, that title summarizes the card I made for the brand new Runway Inspired Challenge. The challenge asks cardmakers to find inspiration from the latest fashion trends. This week's fashion photo is a funky little dress from Vogue's 2012 Resort Collection.

My card was inspired by the colors of the rainbow. I also drew inspiration from the triangular handbag. When I first came up with the idea, I was stacking the paint cans beside eachother and on top of eachother. Then I looked at the photo a little closer and the light bulb above my head turned on - stack the paint cans like a pyramid!

I also wanted to play off the "blue" in the sentiment, so I strayed slightly from the ROY G BIV pattern and put the blue on top, tipped it over and made some blue drops of paint spilling out of it and a big blue puddle on the floor. I like the outcome!
