It’s my turn to host Viva La Verve over on the Verve forum on Splitcoaststampers and this week I have a sketch AND and inspiration photo for you! It’s my first time ever to pick an inspiration photo so I hope you like the one I picked. 🙂
For my card I used Birthday To You Plain Jane, Lean on Me and Dream Big from Verve. To cut out the flower and leaves I used the coordinating dies, Pointed Flower Dies and Dreamy Leaves Dies. My patterned paper is from Echo Park’s All About A Boy paper pad. The background circle is cut using a Spellbinders Circle (large) and the little flag in the corner was die cut using the Flag It Die set from Verve. The ribbon was scrap ribbon I had in my ribbon jar and the bit of twine thread is from May Arts.
I used Distress Markers to color the flower. I started out by filling in the flower solid and added shading using dots. After the dots were applied I went over the flower with a Tombow Blender Pen to lightly soften the dots.
That’s it for me today! I hope you have a wonderful Monday!
