Viva La Verve strikes again, this time for the month of March. This first sketch features a twist of buttons. Of course, I had to use my new Verve stamps that I got and some new Cosmo Cricket paper I picked up. You can find the sketch here.
Here is the second sketch for March, with a twist of red, pink and green! I just had to use my SU Raspberry Tart dp for it. It was perfect and I loved how my Verve stamps replicated the flower in the dp. I am please with my coloring on this card as well. And, get this, I tied a bow! Wonders never cease!
This week's sketch called for a twist of birthday. Lucky for me, I also picked up Verve's Circular Sayings with a cool birthday sentiment in it! I also picked up some Basic Grey Lily Kate dp. I don't think it's new, but it's new to me! The celery card stock was a little bright compared to the green in the dp, so I sponged some Craft white on it to tone it down. I think it worked okay!
Finally, I got into my Cosmo Cricket dp for the fourth sketch. This sketch called for a twist of CAS (Clean and Simple). It wasn't really clean and simple, but limited the embellishments a bit (punches did not count, so I used six punches!)
