FS505 - Merci Beaucoup


This week's Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper is Francie G. I chose this card as my inspiration:



I focused on Francie's:
-leaf theme
-general layout

I changed:
-white background
-no ribbon
-no die cut border

I used a loose watercolour style, colouring each leaf with two layers of distress ink to provide lots of variation in colour.

I used:
-Stampin' Up! Artfully Asian
-Impression Obsession Merci Beaucoup

I love the loose watercolor look, Ardyth. When I try it - not so much.
