Featuring Dawn L!

My friend and CCEE buddy, Dawn L, is today's featured stamper on Splitcoaststampers! I was first drawn to Dawn's gallery because of her gorgeous floral creations. After following her gallery these past few years, I have realized that Dawn's talent and creativity knows no bounds. She truly is a very gifted stamper.

I chose to case Dawn's gorgeous Memorial Day Memories card. Things I changed:

1. stamp sets
2. colors
3. added ribbon
4. sentiment panel shape
5. border punch shape
6. made mine a Christmas card


I colored my image with Copic markers and cut it out with an oval Nestability. Leaving the oval Nestability in place, I used a scalloped post-it note to lightly sponge Bashful Blue around my bird image, creating my clouds and leaving a white outer edge on this panel to create a faux matted look.

My fern leaves were punched out of this striped My Mind's Eye dp, which closely resembles River Rock and then I sponged the leaf edges with True Thyme for some depth.

The bg SU designer paper is some I've had for a very long time. It is a white floral pattern on what closely resembles River Rock. I then stamped my Weathered bg stamp in Riding Hood Red onto this dp.

Congratulations and enjoy your day, Dawn!
