RIC#17


This is the inspiration photo for Runway Inspired Challenge #17:


I wanted to keep as much white space as possible around the outside of the image to reflect the white space in the photo.  For my first attempt I white-embossed the image and water coloured with Distress Inks but it wasn't a good move because of the detail on the stamp, so I stamped it in Versamark Onyx Black and coloured with Tombows, and matted the panel onto another white panel, then mounted it onto the card with pop dots.
