Welcome to the Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop! Verve turns three today and we’re celebrating with a hop, hop, hop! If you've already been hopping along, you arrived here from Angela's (yes there are two Angela's in a row on the blog hop) blog. If not, head on over to Julee's Blog (owner of Verve), for all the info on how to win prizes (after all, what's a party without presents?), and to start hopping from the beginning. If there's a hiccup along the hop, you can always head to the Master Hop List to get the full list of links.
I had so much fun making this card!! I used the set called "Love's Flower" which I have been in love with forever. Right after I signed up for the blog hop, I started going through all my Verve sets and realized I wanted something new so I popped on over to the Verve store and into my cart this set went. I'm so glad it arrived this week otherwise I would have been using one of my older sets. For the sentiment, I've used Versamark and Basic Black ink and then embossed with Clear embossing powder. With my Spellbinder's die still in place I sponged with Bermuda Bay ink for a bit of color. I love how you can get that white border around the die. For the black matting, I used the same die but went around the outside edge with my craft knife because I didn't want a big border. The flower has been watercolored with both Tombows and SU Markers. To be honest, in real life it looks a lot softer than the pic. I added a small rhinestone in a matching tone to the center of the flower.
Thanks for hopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Kathleen's blog, for a little more Verve-y goodness.
You'll want to make sure you leave comments along the way because there will be prizes for lucky commenters somewhere along the hop!!!
