Verve Release Week is Almost Over!

The big party is tonight! Hey! Did you know Verve is going to release 6 new sets of stamps over on SplitCoastStampers. Everyone is invited to join 9:00 ET.

I did a couple of cards for the Release Week Color Challenges.

I surprisingly didn't use Verve stamps for these cards, but this week has been a bit different for me anyway.

I was inspired by some of Amy Sheffer's recents posts and while I didn't have the energy to try and CASE them I wanted to work on the look with a CAS card. I used the Verve Release Week, Michelle's Color Challenge.



Card Details:
Stamps: SU Natures Wonders
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black,Prismacolor Markers (18, 23, 26, 153, 197#, Prismacolor Pencil #917, 944)
Paper: Cream, Mellow Yellow

This next card is also a Verve Release Week Color Challenge from Diva Charmaine. I've been wanting to try the Alcohol Misting technique and the silhouette images from CTMH's Be Yourself fit the task. I love how these ladies came out!

  1. Great job on coloring the flower. Love the effect too of the satin ribbon running thru the vanilla hodgepodge hardware. Definitely will have to try that too.

  2. Such fun cards! Love all the white space on the first one, with that gorgeous textile texture. And that wide ribbon "belt" looks amazing!
