Verve Sneak Peeks! VSOCT09

This card is for today's Ways to Use it Challenge(WT241)! We are to patch it up!! Instead of using actual pieces of paper to patch things, I decided to stamp an image in a sporadic background design in different colors. This card is for the Verve Release Week Sketch Challenges! I am showcasing for you one of the new sets called Holly Jolly Christmas and Christmas in the Air.

For this card I wanted to go alittle vintage whimsical if there is such a thing. I am using nontraditional colors. I stamped and shadowed my background using one of the smaller ornaments that come in the set. I love this multicolored sporadic look. I used a copic C1 marker to shadow the ornaments to give them some depth. I sponged the edges and used a SU texturz plate to go behind the sentiment panel. I finished with some sentiment sponge stenciling and silver pearl accenting.
