FS488 - Thanks So Much


This week's Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper is Robin Lee. Go take a look at her gallery - you'll notice that it is well-loved - check out the views that each of her gorgeous cards gets!

I chose this one as my inspiration:



I focused on Robin's:
-colour scheme
-dots and stripes
-outline flower
-large circle element

I changed:
-added colour to the flower
-popped up the highlight circle with 3 layers of black to provide contrast
-layout
-no vellum

I used:
-Concord & 9th You Are Enough
-Concord & 9th Birdie Banners
-MFT Patterned Paper
-MFT Label Tape Die
-Distress Inks for watercolouring

Also linking up to JUGS347 where the theme is Highlighting.
