Fashionable Ginko

I created this card for the latest Runway Challenge (ric2).

The pattern in the dress looked stripey without being solid…like ants – which is what text sometimes is referred to as, so that is the direction I went.

I started my card knowing I wanted a border of text paper (actually I started with both sides having a border, but that wasn’t working for me). I wanted to do a book themed card, but I couldn’t find a suitable image to go in the space I had created. I opted instead to go with the ginko leaves (set new to me and itching for ink).

For colors I chose to focus on the yellow shoes and green handbag in the inspiration photo – so I added a bit of blue for an analogous combo.

Thanks for stopping by!
