Runway Inspired Challenge Card #52 Process Video

Hey everyone!  Here's a non-Valentine's Day themed card for you this week.  I recently discovered the Runway Inspired Challenge!  They provide a photo of a runway look and you can design a card based on the inspiration!  Here's the inspiration photo:

I liked the soft yellow and pink with the pops of color in the dress and I drew some inspiration for those orange-red shoes as well!  I played with gelatos to get the soft, almost watercolor effect and then added some bright embossing colors!  Here's my take on this look:

And here's a process video showing you how it all came together!  Enjoy!  And if you have any questions or if you liked the video, please leave me a comment!  Thanks!

Three tips:
1. When you are rubbing the gelato around, be careful because the paper can sometimes bend if you go to fast.
2. Don't be afraid to layer the gelato on slowly.  You can always add more!
3. Be careful with the water, especially if you are not using watercolor paper.


  1. Love your soft Gelatos blending and how you captured the 'V' at the front of the model's dress! Thanks for joining in with us at Runway Inspired Challenge!

  2. Such a great design, Kelsey! Thanks so much for playing with us at Runway Inspired Challenge!

  3. I just love the blended colors on your card! Thanks so much for joining us on the Runway!
