Three Cheers for Cheryl!

For my first Dare to Get Dirty challenge at Splitcoast this year, I dedicated it to an AMAZING Design Team alumna - Cheryl Scrivens. She has had some health issues recently, and had to take some time off, and I can tell you - Splitcoast isn't the same without her!

She's so encouraging to new members, and she helps me in innumerable ways on the site. I miss her terribly. On top of everything she does for the community, she's a phenomenal artist.

So I wanted our Fan Club members to use her gallery as inspiration for our first challenge.

I can't even come close to the way she colors, so I tried to just replicate the overall feel of her cards.

They are vibrantly colored, clean cards that are often floral. She often does a little glow around her images.

You can see her stunning gallery here. I miss her cards as much as I miss her!

I chose this splashy rose stamp, and just did very simple Copic coloring. I added (yes, I've been using this a lot lately) this sentiment - I just love the fonts and size of this set.
I can't do her style justice, but it's the thought that counts right?

  1. Cheryl is a truly loving, encouraging friend. I have known her for years and her faith will get her through these tough times. I am so glad we can offer some extra encouragement for her and return some of the love and support she has shown us over the years.

    BTW, after seeing your cards with this stamp, I just had to get it.
