A Vervey Day!!

My cards for week 3 and 4 of the weekly Verve sketch challenges on SCS. Week 4 also includes Verve's Lovefest challenge. Go Me!!



Actually, this card evolved from a background that I stamped about a week ago. I stamped one of the Verve flowers from Lean On Me onto a light patterned paper and colored the center with copics. The pattern did not work on my original card but, I still wanted to use it and it worked for Charmaine's week 3 sketch. Added some flowers- stamped with the outline flower onto patterned paper and regular cardstock, misted with water and crinkled. Added some distressing with a distressing tool and TH antique linen ink. Sentiment is from the same set Verve's Lean on Me.

Week 4 sketch and Verve's Lovefest....


Used some new papers from Authentique Renew with a sentiment from Verve's Thankful Hearts stamped on and layered with the Mini Bookplate dies {Verve}.... love that there are two dies and the layering is perfect!! Adorable little sentiment layer!! Added some seam binding and lace from the Ribbon Carousel.

Janelle's sketch...
