Verve Stamps August 2017 Spotlight Hops


DAY 4 - Sunday, 8/27/17
Welcome to Day 4 of the Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!  It's time for another day of spotlighting the Verve release with the Verve Divas and special guests! We're super excited to have another very special Diva Alumni joining us for the hop today. Everything previewed this week will be available to order in the Verve online store on Monday, August 28. If you know you want it all, today is the final day to pre-order the August 2017 Buy it All Bundle at a 30% discount! Only one more sleep until release!


Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Scripture Medley 5 stamp set. This set includes the re-introduction of the final 2 scripture plain janes, as well as 9 all new scripture verse stamps.

If you got here from Maureen's blog you are in the right place.





I started with some watercolored paper.  I stamped the floral image from Scripture Medley 5 stamp set several times using versamark and embossed in white.




I used my Kuratake Gonsai Tambi watercolors and created a watecolor wash using hues of blues, greens, and yellows.  I dabbed the color with a crumpled paper towel to remove some color and to create some color variation for added dimension and depth.  I created this process two to three times until I achieved the saturation of color that I wanted. 



I added some splatters of black watercolor for effect.  I die cut and stamped the scripture for the focal point onto vellum.  I attached it with a tiny attacher.  I finished my card with a few of Verve's Shine Bright Sequin Mix.
