Midweek Viva La Verve




It's been so busy lately, that I made myself have some fun yesterday with the latest Viva La Verve sketch from Amy Sheffer. It's a beaut!


There are 5 sketches for the month of May, and three of them have already been posted. If you fancy a chance to win some new Verve you can jump on the sketch challenge forum and start creating! We'd love to see what you create!


So here's my take on Amy's sketch.


I know it's hard to get masculine cards created, it's extremely hard for me, but this sketch really worked well for the style. I used the Purely Sentimental stamp set from Verve on this card. It's a great little set of sentiments. I combined it with pattern paper from Simple Stories Generations line and some embossing enamels to add all the texture. I was able to get this card done quickly because I'm reusing some scraps. The sentiment is stamped on some white paper that was coffee sprayed for another project. The embellishment is my first experience into bottle cap smashing in my Cuttlebug. All the shimmers on paper come from some embossing enamel powder that I sprinkled over the paper and heat embossed from the back side of the paper. The same powder was used in the recessed cavity of the bottle cap and then clear embossing powder was heat over the top.

Extra embellishments added on the corners of the polka dot paper with my mini stapler and again on the sentiment panel where I used the round hole notebook edge punch.

I hope your week is going well and that your crazy schedule gives you a chance to stop and breath soon. I'm hoping mine does.
