A Bit of Verve

I have been a huge fan of Verve for ages now, but when I packed everything up for the move my Verve stamps ended up in boxes that I couldn't get to. Well good news I started going into the boxes that had yet to be opened and found all my Verve stamps! It took a little bit of work, but I decided to play with two of the challenges Verve has going on right now too!The first being the current Viva La Verve Sketch, which is so darn cute! The second being the May Get Your Diva On Challenge! I have been watching these challenges since Julee introduced them and decided to play along this time. The current challenge is to use fabric on your creation so I stopped by Hobby Lobby and picked up two different black and white prints and made a card around both of those. The first print is the center scalloped circle on my card, the second print was cut out using a rose die to create a mostly black, with a bit of white accents rose. Since the fabrics I picked out were black and white I wanted to continue to color scheme in the rest of the card with a pop of one color, in this case I went with red since I just had to ink up Love Monkey! I had never realized that this poor guy had yet to see ink, but no worries, he is all inked up now! Plus I had to finish it all off with a bit of stitching and a fun red ribbon!

I had a lot of fun with both of these challenges, I do hope you enjoy my creation for today! Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Glad you found your Verve stamps! Love the little love monkey and the way you incorporated fabric! Great job with the sketch, too! Thanks for playing!

Gorgeous card with a cute little monkey! Luvin the use of fabrics, too! What really caught my eye is the layered and cut piece the monkey is ON! Is that a die cut or am I looking at a trimmed out scallopped circle? Fabulous....I am always looking for different ways to use a die and this one is FUN!
