Verve January Release 2012 -Day 3 of Spotlights

I'm so glad you stopped by! It's the third day of Verve's Spotlight Hop and the Divas are sharing some last peeks of stamp sets, dies and Plain Jane's! Tosha's place was your last hop, but no worries if you are just joining in here, there is a hop list at the end of this post to get you where you need to go!

Okay, Eeks! The couple in the Twitterpated set tickled my crafty funny bone right away. They are so artistic with adorable character that I headed for the mixed media supplies. With some new tips in hand shared by my friend, Em, I stamped and colored this card with delight! They. Are. Cute!


One lucky commenter from one of the spots on today's hop will win the stamps and dies being spotlighted today... Twitterpated, Hearts & Swirls Frame Die, All Aflutter Die Set and All Aflutter plain jane. 


All of the stamps and dies you'll see previewed this week will be available following the release party on Friday night. Deadline for comments to be eligible for the prize drawing is 5PM Mountain on Friday, January 13.  Winners will be announced during the release party this Friday night!  


You're next spot is with the talented Diva, Amy at Pickled Paper Designs!

    1. Hi Marte! Welcome to my crafty world. :o)

      I painted white gesso across an old book page and scrapped back some of the paint while it was still wet so you can see the text peeking through. An old credit card or a straight piece of clear plastic packaging will do.

      I stamped the images with Versafine Onyx Black and heat set it.

      I used watercolor pencils for my color and did it in layers. Pencil, aqua pen, more pencil, aqua pen... until I liked the colors. I didn't want it to be too dark though so my colors went on very light.

      Hope this helps!
