Some Sunday Verve Fun
I had a bit of free time and just wanted to play around with some of my Verve stamps, they don't see enough ink.
I went right to the MoJo Monday sketch #283 for this week and decided it would be perfect to use for my card.
Then I checked out the Diva Dare challenge for March. It's a good one, but kind of tough, too, lol!
It's called "Just Give Me Stamps, Buttons and Bling". The challenge is to create a card combining the styles of two of the Verve Divas. Here are the links to their creations: Diva Laurie here and Diva Maureen's Verve creations here.
So here is what I was inspired by. Moe uses a lot of white card bases (something I never do, but love the look), so I started there, and from her I also picked up the rhinestone sprinkles around the sentiment, she always does that and it looks awesome. I also was inspired by her use of buttons and twine. Then I was off to be inspired by Laurie's creations. I took inspiration from her use of lots of mixes of dsp, stitching and plenty of layers. Oh my gosh, I could have spent hours admiring the creations of both diva! Love both of their styles! Really fun challenge, the tough part was to try to mesh two different styles!
