Blooming Verve

This week is the new Verve Stamps release and with every new stamp release Verve hosts all sorts of great challenges! This release brings four great challenges, three great sketches and an all new color combo! I started with the first sketch from this release, and I decided to go springy with it! I have always loved Julee’s sketches, but her release sketches always seem more fun to me, I am not sure why, but the challenge always seems a bit harder, but well worth the effort! One of my favorite part to these sketches is how they make me look for ways to fit my instant inspiration into the sketch itself. When I start a sketch challenge I always pick out a stamp set that I think coordinates with the feel to the sketch. Some sketches seem regal, some are cute and fun, this one just shouted ‘spring’, although I don’t know what it was. I set out looking through all my Verve Stamps, as you may imagine I have a ‘few’ to select from and I settled on one of my newest sets Floral Symphony from the last Verve release. I love the tulips and the sentiments in this set so I just had to use both. I love how the entire card came out, the colors seem to work well, and the end result really did scream ‘spring’ like I wanted it to! Hope everyone has a great day, I do apologize for the missing Anya post yesterday for the Hop. My doctor’s appointment lasted a lot longer then expected and I didn’t get to finish the card I had created, but hopefully I can share that creation with everyone this weekend!
