GIVEAWAY: Viva La Verve Sketch Biltz - #4
I am delighted that so many of you are participating in my Blog Blitz this week!!! Thanks for all your visits and comments. They mean a lot to me.....even if you are just here for the prizes. :) Hey, I *know* how it is, believe me! Hehehehehe....
I am back with Post #4 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 each post to be entered.
Here's the sketch that I used for these eleven cards that I am showing you in this Blog Blitz:
Such a fabulous sketch...no wonder I made eleven cards from it!!!
So....back to my saga on making failed masculine cards......
Before I put my pink scraps away (so they wouldn't continue to distract me away from guy cards), I noticed some red ones that might work together. Two problems: the piece for the background had flower-looking things on it...aaaaaaaand...it had pink on it. That immediately got my pink radar activated again and another pink card came up on the screen.....this time using a scrap of crumpled doily for the partial circle!!! Ha. Out the window went any hope of a masculine card....again!
This particular piece I used for the background has always bugged me. It is from a very old DCWV winter stack but looks like it should be summery or something. Turns out the flowers are actually stylized snowflakes. Who knew? (Would you have noticed that if I hadn't mentioned it?) They still look like flowers to me! But since it is a wintery print, I will use it in winter.....and I further added to the snowflake look with shiny silver embossing.
Supplies used include:
Verve - Scripture Medley 2
Ranger - Embossing Powder in Super Fine Silver
Lots of scraps from my stash!!
Now for the Question for Post #4:
Have you ever used an out-of-season piece accidentally because you didn't notice something like snowflakes? :)
That's all for now. Be sure to answer the questions on each of my Blog Blitz posts by 11:59 pm April 30, 2016 for lots of entries into my big Blog Blitz Giveaway! See you next post!
