ColorQing My New Verve Flowers



Sorry about the picture.  I had to do an indoor picture and didn't  have much time to take the picture so it's a lot on the green side LOL!  Will redo it in the morning.

Mercy provided yet another wonderful sketch and I decided to combine it with this week's ColorQ50I'm not totally sold on this card...the white needed something as it is a bit stark. My mind is saying I should have embossed the white background panel (yes, Swiss Dots came to mind, or at least some sort of pattern) and then stamping something on the celery panel rather than embossing it.  That's what happens when you are in a hurry.  May have to go back and change it up tomorrow LOL! 

I flipped the sketch so I could use more of my new Verve flowers....happy "sighs" continue LOL!  This time I cut and layered the flowers from the Dream Big set.  The rest of the card is pretty self explanatory.

Have a great Sunday!  I'm off to keep playing with my new Verve - hope you don't get sick of it!

We could never get sick of Verve or green :) so no problem here. Marvelous job with the color sketch, that looks like a difficult one...glad it's you and not me. So it looks to me like those Verve stamps were definitely worth the wait!

I like how you turned the sketch around, too. And how you popped up that pretty Verve flower. I have never used a Verve stamp; so they're pretty wonderful, huh? I may have to go check it out. :)
