FS495 - Floral Gridlock


This week's Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper is helekins. She has an amazing gallery full of dramatic cards. She also participates in an ATC swap and often, her project is 9 similar or identical ATCs.

I chose one of these projects as my inspiration, but made it into one card:




I focused on Helen's:
-grid layout
-bright, blended colours
-dramatic black silhouettes

I changed:
-one card instead of 9
-moved the silhouette in the coloured block
-shape
-less 'distressing' around the edges

I used:
-Papertrey Be
-Papertrey Keep It Simple: Thank You
-Distress inks (Worn Lipstick, Persimmon; Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade; Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers)
-MFT Pierced Square dies
