Viva la Verve
This is the first of 5 sketches for the Viva la Verve challenge in the Verve forum on SCS. Amber has come up with this fun-to-use layout. With all the royal wedding festivities going on today, I was drawn to this elegant brocade black paper. I used Raspberry Fizz paper and ribbon for the pop of color...along with Simply Chartreuse leaves. While the sentiment die cut was still in the die, I used a black gel pen to make a fine outline...a simple detail but one I love! This is also for the F4A challenge to use more than 3 layers. Here's what I used...
STAMPS: Serenity (sentiment) and Hope Blooms (flowers) - both sets by Verve.
PAPER: Nambly Screen Prints "Brocade"; Raspberry Fizz, Simply Chartreuse & White - all by PTI. Silver gray paper by American Crafts.
INK: Versafine Onyx Black
ACCESSORIES: Ribbon (freebie from Ellen Hutson's store), Oval, Oval Scallops and Labels Sixteen Nesties, Little Leaves Sizzlet (SU), Brads (Recollection).
