Here's my card for the Viva La Verve Aug04 sketch challenge with a twist. The twist this week is to use our favorite color combination. That narrows it down to about twelve! LOL I chose red, white and black since it's one of my of favorite combos. I used the Verve "Because of You" stamp set and stamped the floral spray in Versafine Black on SU really red dsp. I stamped the spray again on real red cardstock and cut out the larger flower and popped it up after curling the petals around a paintbrush handle. The main image ovals were cut with shape cutters. I took another floral image from the set and stamped it off once in warm grey, then I took the sentiment stamp and curled it around on the block to create the oval sentiment and stamped that in Versafine Onyx black. The word "Mom" was stamped in Real Red, and the horizontal panel was done with Making Memories dsp and black cardstock. A large MS pearl was added to the popped up flower, while smaller Hero Arts pearls were added to the smaller flowers. The white dots were done with a white gelpen. The taffeta ribbon is by SU! and the white cardstock is by PTI.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and have yourselves a great Monday!
