I am back with Post #3 for my big 11-Post Blog Blitz where I made 11 cards using the Viva La Verve Sketch 2. I have a giveaway going on during this Blog Blitz so take a look at THIS POST for details. Comment on any or all of my eleven Blog Blitz posts answering the question(s) for that post to be entered.
Here's the Viva La Verve sketch that was my muse for this Blog Blitz. I love that this sketch has a couple of panels as elements. I have zillions of 3-1/2" strips in my scrap bags. These were perfect for those rectangles in the sketch. I cut them into 2-1/2" lengths. Perfect!
Well, I still had a pile of pink scraps on my craft desk that tended to the orchid hue. I decided to go ahead....get finished with pink...and then put the remainders away so I wouldn't have to contend with them while I try to make a masculine card. So what popped out of the crafty brew was a pretty pink and silver combo.
The sentiment is from the same set I have been using, Verve - Scripture Medley 2. This time I stamped it in Versamark and heat embossed it with Ranger - Embossing Powder in Super Fine Silver.
The scrap of white cardstock I used has some traces of Perfect Pearls Mist overspray from a previous project, but I kind of liked the effect so I used it anyway. This Blog Blitz is all about using ONLY scraps and derelict pieces in my stash. That matte textured piece and the shiny foiled background are from the old discontinued DCWV stacks: Handmade Paper Stack and Black Currant Stack. (Glad I bought an extra of that last one because all I have left of the first one is scraps!) Many (maybe most!) of the DCWV stacks on my shelves are discontinued, so I don't even try to make a link to them anymore on my Product Links page.
Now for the Question for Post #3:
Which scrap piece on this card has an imperfection that I ignored and used anyway?
That's all for now. Be sure to answer the questions at each of my Blog Blitz posts for lots of entries in my big Blog Blitz Giveaway! See you next post!
