Verve Diva Inspiration Challenge

It’s time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop! There are two ways to win Verve prizes: comment on the design team’s blog hop posts (linked below) to see their take on the inspiration, then go get inky and link up your take on the challenge to be eligible in our prize drawings! You have the rest of the month to link up, so feel free to play as often as you like.

Our July challenge is Sensational Stripes

Stripes go with everything! Make them nautical, or pair with florals for a graphic look. Use stripes however you’re inspired! Use the inspiration graphic or head off in your own direction, just show us your stripes!

Thanks For Making My Day Awesome by Jen Shults

Hi everyone! I hope you’ve had a great week so far! Today I have a bright sunny Verve card to share with you. 🙂 I hope my take on our Diva Inspiration Challenge actually fits the challenge because my interpretation of stripes is a little loose. I used dots from Better Together along with white embossing powder and Color Burst watercolors to create the background for my card… thus the stripes… see the dots, they make stripes… right? I stamped the flowers from Be Blessed and watercolored them with Color Burst watercolors as well. The leaves are die cut using the Sprightly Sprigs Die Set and were also painted with Color Burst watercolors. Because I had so much color going on I stamped the sentiment on white and kept it simple by die cutting it with the Vintage Oval Die.
