FS468 - Thank You


This week, the Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper is Whimsey (aka Michele Greenwood). Michele has a wonderfully bright and cheery (even whimsical!) gallery here.

I chose this card as my inspiration:



I focused on Michele's:
-colour scheme
-use of black images with dots

I changed:
-the layout and size
-butterflies to dragonflies
-added a sentiment

I used:
-Impression Obsession Dragonfly (surgically altered!)
-Papertrey sentiment
-MFT Grosgrain impression plate (retired)
-White gel Pen
-MFT Circle Stax
-Distress inks: Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves
