FS493 - Thanks

This week's Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper is Vickie Y. Another amazing gallery full of inspiration - I chose 4 in my initial run through, but settled on this one:

I focused on Vickie's:
-stormy colours
-horizontal stripe background
-black script sentiment
-gold dots

I changed:
-no flower
-changed spatter from purple to gold
-shape of the focal panel

This is also for Day 13 of #thedailymarker30day colouring challenge.

I used:
-distress inks (Pumice Stone, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Blue Print, Chipped Sapphire)
-Gold KGT
-Mama Elephant Thanks script die.

Beautiful take on Vickie's card. The watery blues are so pretty and I do love that die. ME makes some amazing dies, don't they?! But it's your design that makes this card so special. I guessing that Vickie loved your take on her card. I know I do. Bev

Those gold splatters are so gorgeous against the beautiful blue hues, Ardyth ... love how the sentiment seems to be being tossed about in the ocean waves ... what a great sense of movement! Hugs & bisous, Anita :)
