A four part challenge
Although I have "older" stuff to share from the past couple weeks, I thought I'd switch it up today. Verve is releasing tonight (http://www.vervestamps.com) and for their release they had a release week challenge. I ended up getting all four parts done - so maybe I can win something! I know...wishful thinking - but it was fun to pull out the Verve stamps and play with them. The sketches were great too - nothing too complicated, but with room to try something new.
This is from the first sketch - VSAPR1 over on Splitcoast. I used the Stars set from Verve (a favorite for sure!). I wanted some fun star paper and all that drew my attention was this paper from My Minds Eye - it's from their Halloween line but who says orange and black is only for October!? I love how this one turned out!
On another note, yesterday my friend Gretchen had her first release as a guest designer on her design team. Go on over and see what she can do - amazing work!!! - www.in2stamping.blogspot.com
Wish me luck - maybe I'll win one of their drawings tonight so I can justify the hundreds (maybe thousands!) of dollars already spent over the years : )
