FS496 - Beautiful Day


This week's Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper is mandianna (Mandi). Her gallery is full of gorgeous cards and I chose this card as my inspiration:



I focused on Mandi's:
-pink flower and green stem
-black border
-black 'beautiful' sentiment
-layout

I changed:
-I put the blue on the inside of the black border (it may have been Mandi's background)
-technique (I used Zigs, Mandi used Gelatos)
-splatter to sequins

I used:
-Altenew Lotus
-Essentials By Ellen Mondo Magnolia
-Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers
-Pretty Pink Posh Sequins

Thought I'd get a little commenting in before church this morning. I love what you've done with Mandi's card. The lotus is beautiful, and the watercoloring is perfection. Your blue background is soft and serene, and the sequins really set it off. This is just lovely, Ardyth. Have a wonderful Sunday. Bev

Here I was thinking you weren't really into watercolouring. ;) Wow! This is beautiful.
