SleepyinSeattle - Featured Stamper

Huge congratulations to Joanne, aka SleepyinSeattle on Splitcoaststampers, on being selected as this week's Featured Stamper! Joanne and I are on a Doubledog Dare Challenge DT together, and I have loved her work for a very long time. I literally spent hours pouring over her gallery trying to decide on a card to case. I found myself returning to her Birthday Buttons card. I was particularly drawn to the beautiful gold embossing she did on her flowers.

We are required to change two or more things when we case a Featured Stamper's card. I changed pretty much everything except for the choice of sentiment and the gold embossing. I added color and a textile dry embossed background; I used a circle Nestability on my Pale Plum cardstock; and I used a different floral stamp set.

After I gold embossed the Polkadot Punches flower, I watercolored my flowers with Twinkling H20s. My leaves are from In Full Bloom; I colored those with SU's Mellow Moss and Always Artichoke markers.

Being able to case my friend Joanne brought a smile to my face today. I hope you're having a wonderful Sunday today!
