Call to Me (Anni-VERVE-Sary Day 1)
Good Morning Everyone!
Today is the first day of school for everyone! Just got all the kiddos on the bus and have a little while to post a card before I'm out the door for some other events today. Did you know that Verve Stamps is getting ready to release more new stamps?! Yep! August 24th is when they'll be available. However, there is lots of stuff going on with great opportunities to win some free stamps and see sneak peaks for the guest designer. Pop on over to the Verve Blog and read all about it. I decided to participate in the challenges being posted in the SCS forum. Granted, I just started yesterday and I'm going to have play catch up; but you have until August 24th to get all five challenges done and uploaded to the proper gallery in SCS.
Ok, so the first challenge is a color challenge to use Pink, Green and Brown. I used Dark Chocolate, Sage Shadow, Kraft and a Pink from my stash. I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. The scripted background stamp on the Sage Shadow piece is "Tapestry Script Background" by Basic Grey. The scripture stamp in the center is a Verve Plain Jane stamp called "Jeremiah 33:3" I cut the cross in the corner using Cut above Die set from Verve. I used some embossing folders on the Kraft and pink and then distressed the edges to give it all a bit of texture.
