Jazzing it Up with Viva la Verve






The Inspiration Challenge on SCS had us getting inspiration from the Jazz it Up Home Interiors website...wow, what awesome pieces of art! I chose this canvas picture with the layered blues and greens - so cool, calming and serene...much needed after some emotional news yesterday! I used Amber's sketch from the Viva la Verve challenge and chose the hobby room with the same greens/blues on the wall collage as my inspiration. My card is busier than I normally do...in hindsight, I should have used a solid ribbon color rather than add more busy-ness with the polka dots. The image is new from Verve; colored with Copics; part of it cut out and popped w/dimensionals. Some Diamond Stickles were added to the center. It's been several days since I was in my stamping room and it was great to be back into stamping...wonderful therapy for me!

STAMPS: Birthday Wishes Plain Jane (Verve)
PAPER: Hawaiian Shores, Green Boutique (PTI), Neenah Solar White

The colors all work well together. I know what you mean by missing your stamping room. I just came back from a 6 day visit to your beautiful state, I enjoyed my trip a lot, but I did miss my craft room...
