Runway Inspired Challenge

I'd like to share a card today that I made for the Runway Inspired Challenge. I made the card over several days, snatching time when I could, as I have started a new job this week.
So, here's the outfit.

I used the right hand panel on the shirt by Carven as inspiration for both the colours and also the placement of the inks. The belt was the inspiration for the sentiment which is from a set by Simon Says Stamp called Many Thanks.

I dropped Distress Ink onto a wet piece of watercolour paper. The blues I used originally were Broken China and Salty Ocean, and the Reds were ripe Persimmon and Worn Liptick. I thought it could be bolder, so I dried it off, and added chipped Sapphire and Fired brick, and then I was pleased with the results.
This picture has the panel sideways!

And here's the finished card. I used red and black for mounting.
