Mercy Meets Verve
This is a very busy week for me as there is a Verve Release Party happening this Friday over at the Verve Forum on SCS. Every time there is a release party, Julee puts out a few challenges which allow you the opportunity to win some free Verve!! I love Verve stamps and you don't have to ask me twice if I'll be doing them, or giving up a few hours of sleep to get them all done LOL!
The first challenge I did was one of the colour challenges. The Master Thread for the challenges for this month's release can be found here. I chose to start with Michelle's colour challenge because I just LOVE fall colours. We had to use Chocolate Chip, Mellow Moss, Pumpkin Pie and Vanilla. Being sketch design challenged at the best of times, I used Mercy's Tuesday sketch so I could ink up this cute tree stamp I found at Mike's in the $1.50 stamp bin. I added some of Taylor's Tiny Twinkies to the tree for some sparkle and dimension, but it doesn't really show in the picture. Since the Rough Stripes embossing folder reminds me of tree bark, I used it on the vanilla panel. I wanted to go with a wider ribbon across the bottom, but this was the only orange I had in my stash so it had to do. I dressed it up a bit with a button and some piercing under it on the moss panel.
Thanks for stopping buy today - your comments make my day :D
