I am back with Post #2 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.
One thing that really attracted me to this particular sketch was the potential for using lots of scraps. I keep my main bags of scraps that I am currently using in one drawer of my massive craft desk. That way they are super-handy. No excuses not to use them!
Well, since I already had pink scraps out from Card #1, I figured I would go ahead and make a pink card and do masculine cards after this. Ha. As you know, eleven cards later and I still don't have any guy cards!
Verve - Scripture Medley 2 stamp set again and stamped with Distress Ink in Picked Raspberry.
I realize it is probably some terrible crafting faux pas to stamp a sentiment with Distress Ink because they aren't as clear and crisp as other inks, but I often do it when I want a particular color other than my Versafine hues. My real dye inks are in a plastic case that is not nearly as easy to get at as my DIs are.....so guess what gets used?
Besides, now I have my nifty DI color chart so I can match the colors! I have four more butterflies on my chart since I made this at the beginning of January for THIS POST. Now just four more to go....waiting for JoAnn.com to have mini-set #15 on a half-price sale. :)
Okay, here is the Post #2 Question(s):
What is different about this card than my usual style? What have you tried lately that is different from what you usually make?
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!
