Dream Big VLV

Hi friends!  It's time for a brand new sketch over at Viva la Verve!  I had a lot of fun going soft and shabby, combining Lesley's sweet sketch with the current Diva Inspirations challenge.

Shabby chic handmade card by Julee Tilman featuring Verve Stamps| www.poeticartistry.blogspot.com

I started by stamping and embossing the flowers from Dream Big in tangerine tango onto patterned paper.  The smaller blooms are cut with the coordinating Scalloped Flowers Die Set and I hand cut the larger flower.  The three flowers are layered on dimensionals and accented with a big rhinestone. The leaves are stamped tone on tone in smoky slate and cut with the Dreamy Leaves Die Set.


For the sentiment panel, I scraped a bit of white gesso across a smoky slate card stock piece, then distressed with vintage photo distress ink.  I added some star pearls down the side, then layered three pieces of twill behind on some starry paper.  A bunch of distressed edges and I was done.

In other news, I have another card on the Verve Blog today, for the kickoff to the Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.  It uses the free limited time digi set, Three Cheers.  There's also a 20% off code for the Verve store, so be sure to head on over and check out what I'm sharing today. Here's a little peek...
