FS463 - 70th Birthday


This week's Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper is cburry, aka Cheri! Cheri has an amazing gallery of cards full of pretty detail and amazing colouring! I chose this card as my inspiration:



I focused on Cheri's:
-colour scheme
-use of slanted, graphic stripes
-pops of red

I changed:
-theme
-reduced images and embellishments
-orientation of the stripes
-size of the card

I used:
-Basic Black (SU!), Smoky Slate (SU!) and Limelight (MFT) cardstock
-MFT pierced square die
-Avery Elle sentiment
-Memory Box number dies
-red copics, Wink of Stella, glossy accents.

Congratulations, Cheri!

Cool, crisp and wonderfully graphic, Ardyth ... I'm always amazed (and in awe!) of how you pick out elements of another card and make one very much your own! Hugs & bisous, mon amie, Anita :)
