Hi everyone! Happy Monday. I have a Verve card to share using Amy R's sketch! I've said it before, I really love Amy's sketches. I seriously wish I could stamp in my sleep, I could play along more often -LOL!
This card uses one of the sentiments from Verve's new set, Just For You. I think this one is perfect for a mother, so I combined it with some sentiments from Because of You and turned this into kinda Mother's Day card. I love that this set has the branch images in several sizes, makes it perfect for stamping on both image and sentiment panels!
I went kinda monochromanic with this one, but it was not intended! I actually had lots of pink out and a piece of MME DP for the circle part -but couldn't make it work. So, it ended up being this. The brown colors are from Prism the Suede brown light and Suede brown medium. That crocheted flower is so fun I bought it off of Etsy!! The 1/4" light brown grosgrain is from Heidi's store, with 87 colors you can find a ribbon to match every card!!
Here is a picture of the inside. I stamped the larger branch image along the bottom in Mellow Moss and then Mom in chocolate chip above it. I think this turned out very earthy with just the right amount of elegance!!
AND, check this out- Hope Stamps Eternal is sponsoring this week's challenge at The Next Level... I was new to this challenge blog until Rach directed me to them. They are based out of the UK, and have challenges that step it up a bit - to the Next Level!! They also post tips, techniques, freebies all week long! Play along in this week's challenge for a chance to win a $25 Store credit at Hope Stamps Eternal! This week's Challenge is a sketch, but the Next Level twist is to make your image with a 3D element. There is a tutorial available on how to make a gorgeous 3D rose. But, if that is a bit too much, you can also layer your image -anything that makes the image have some dimension to it.
Here is a detail shot of the flower (click for a larger image). Thanks for stopping by!
