London Fashion Week

I promised more TH Runway projects and it seems fitting that this card should make its appearance in London fashion week.
Back in July I had booked a place on a workshop with Helen Chilten using the runway stamps and watercolours. Unfortunately the class was cancelled but I wanted to have a go using stencils and watercolours anyway as this was the theme of the class.

Stamps used : Tim Holtz Runway, Tim Holtz Cityscapes by Stampers Anonymous.
Stencil : Prima Marketing "Stencil Bubbles".
Distress Markers used for the stencilling on watercolour card with loads of water : Tumbled Glass and Wild Honey.

For the stencilling I scribbled the distress markers on the stencil, spritzed with water and used it as a stamp. Then I used a dry baby wipe to move some of the colour left through the stencil and then added a third layer of bubbles with the same colours. I love the green that the wild honey mixed with tumbled glass makes.
The runway fashion models are stamped on white stamping card and coloured with Promarkers then cut out and arranged on the background.

This is my last minute entry for this week's Craft Barn Challenge which is to use stencils and/or masks.
