Watercolour Blooms

Well, out of five Verve challenges, I have completed four. I just haven't been able to locate anything that could use a facelift, so I may not get to Sankari's challenge.

Today though I have completed the Verve Sketch Challenge. I have to say I love how the card turned out. I have had the set Botanical Blooms for over a year and this is the first time I have used it.

I samped the flowers on Watercolour paper in Staz On ink. Next I coloured the solid image stamp with Watercolour Crayons, spritzed with water and stamped. I cut the sentiment and image out using the Circle Scissor Plus and layered them on Mellow Moss cardstock. I sponged the circles with Soft Sky and Pink Pirouette ink and then I added a bit of paper piercing on the circles.

Next I used some old patterned paper and layered them on Mellow Moss cardstock. I added a bow of Vanilla Organza ribbon around the long strip of patterned paper and then added my layers to the Soft Sky cardfront.

Finally I popped up my sentiment and image using dimensionals and attached to the front of my card.

Thanks for stopping by and if you missed my earlier posts this weekend then keep scrolling down to see all the other works of art I created for the Verve Challenges.
