Getting My Diva On
March's Get Your Diva On challenge on SCS is being sponsored by Verve Diva Tosh. Her challenge is to use neutrals on your card (white, ivory, gray, black, brown) and a splash of colour. The winner of the challenge gets the wonderful honor of being a Guest Diva at the next Verve release.
I pulled out some black and cream DP from of my slowly dwindling Costco DP stash and went to work using the first Verve sketch for March. The sentiment just seemed to fit the card and I could use two colours on it so it was a perfect fit. The flower is a tissue flower I made using a scalloped circle punch and eight layers of red tissue paper. Thankfully I had some in my stash as the DP called for a "soft" embellishment. All you need to do to make the flower is layer all the punched scallops, put a brad in the middle, scrunch each layer of tissue toward the middle one layer at a time, and then unfold the layers until you get your desired "poofiness". A few half pearls finished things off nicely.
Spring Break has now begun so kids and I get to hang out together for two weeks. Our school district is waaaaay over crowded so they are taking a two week Spring Break to save money. Off to visit friends, go swimming, have a jammie day or two , visit the Aquarium and Science World and do a Spring Clean (kids are going to groan when they hear that last one LOL!).
Feels wonderful to get inky and be able to post a bit more again. Therapy for the soul :) Have a fabulous day and thanks for sharing a part of yours with me today.
