Welcome to Verve's Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops! There's a new Verve release just around the corner and for the next couple of days we'll be shining our creative spotlights on the new Verve sets and dies releasing this Friday, August 26! I'm the first stop on today's hop, so why not settle in for a fresh little dose of inspiration?
Today we're sharing inspiration featuring the new Scripture Medley 4 compilation. Our plain jane line of stamps is retiring, and this compilation includes 7 previous plain janes and two verses from the retired Everlasting Life stamp set. Check out the Verve Blog post today for more on this set and a little bit about our fabulous Guest Divas, Autumn Clark and Hillary Harris!
The flowers are from the previously released Great Friend set, and colored with copics. One exciting part of this release is a new die set that coordinates with flowers in a new set as well as the beloved Great Friend set. A die for Great Friend has been our most requested product, and I'm super happy that I was able to make it work for a new set as well! Here I used the smallest flower in the set and cut it with the Great Kindness Die Set. The leaves are also part of the die set and I added a few details with a marker. A bit of white paint, stenciling, and some embossed chicken wire gives it a fun distressed, mixed-media flair. I finished off with just a bit of twine behind the flowers and some liquid pearl accents on the flower center. If you recognize the layout, it's the current sketch by Maureen for Viva la Verve!
Okay, that's all from me today. Thanks so much for stopping by!
