Verve July Diva Dare
If you haven't already found it, the Verve Diva Dare is happening over on the Verve Blog!! This month's theme is Tattered Pages. This month's dare pays tribute to Julee (Poetic Artistry), owner and creator of Verve Stamps and Diva Teresa (Paperie Blooms). Julee has created countless, uplifting sentiments which have become one of Verve's trademarks, and Teresa knows how to rock distressing and "shabbiness" on her cards. So what we're daring you to create this month is a card using an uplifting sentiment and some distressing and/or shabby element to it. Kind of like an encouraging card you have received which you have read so many times the edges are a bit tattered. Just remember to use at least one Verve product on your creation!
I used the Hundred Hearts set for my card along with the frame from Twitterpated. The frame was die cut using the Hearts & Swirls Frame Die. The papers are from the Blossom Soup Collection from Jillibean Soup. The heart doily was something I found in the Target Dollar Bin long ago. :) The ribbon is from the Spring Fling Ribbon Collection. You can see a little peek of the heart border from the Scalloped Trim Trio Die Set. I sponged a little ink around the edges of the card, the frame and doily to give a little more of that distressed look. The patterned papers were "roughed up" with the edge of my scissors. This isn't a style that I normally "do", but I had a lot of fun creating today's card!
Head on over to the Verve Blog for details on how to play along and win prizes!! Thanks for stopping by today and we hope you play along!!
