Featured Stamper Anne Ryan!!

The featured stamper on Splitcoast today is none other than Anne Ryan!! Anne is such a wonderfully sweet lady who is sooo kind to leave such encouraging comments and her gallery is full of fabulous cards!!!
It took a while to decide what card to case but finally chose this one. I kept the same fun theme and basic sketch but changed it from girly to masculine, deleted the round layers, added the star brads and twill, changed the colors, papers, added the distressing, and changed the dots around the edge to doodling!!
The adorable Clear Dollar Stamps stamp set called Charlie Horse was stamped with Memento Brown and colored with copics. The background was sponged with Bashful Blue and Close to Cocoa was sponged around the edge. The image was then attached with dimensionals. I cut out the rectangle Creamy Caramel piece originally to use under Charlie but changes my mind and used it for the sentiment instead. Do you ever change a design in midstream?? Oh, BTW, the Charlie stamps were designed by Laurie Wilson, the Design Team Coordinator for Clear Dollar Stamps!! Thanks for coming to visit today and I will have more for you after church!!
