Verve Sneak Peek Day Two ~ Text Objects


It's day two of the Verve Sneak Peeks, and that means I get to share a card I made with some of the text images from the Text Objects set. It's filled with Julee's typical fabulous sentiments, and they're written in text form also. I went crazy with this set. Lots more to share at the release party tonight, and on my blog tomorrow and next week. It's a wonderfully versatile set that also includes some stitched hearts and a sweet little boat. So it can be dressed up or made to be more whimsical. It's a must have set imho!!!

For the background, I took one of the scripted sentiments stamped it with Onyx Black Versafine, and alternated it with a stitched line stamped both ways. I then ink distressed the edges with Pumice Stone Ranger Distress Ink.

I also used the flower from the Amazing Wishes set. I just stamped both sizes with Tuxedo Black (Memento) ink onto red cardstock three times each, cut them out, spritzed them with water (gave them a pretty good soaking), scrunched them up into a ball. I then gently unfolded them, dried them with my heat tool, and glued all the pieces together. Of course it needed some sparkle, so I added some Cinnamon Stickles to the petals, and Frosted Lace stickles to the leaves that I cut with a Sizzix die cut.

For the inside, I included the beautifully fonted sentiment that matches the script, along with some scallops that I made with an MFT die.

That's about it for my card today. Wanna see what the rest of the divas have for inspiration? Check it out!!

Wow - Wow - Wow! Fabulous card Tosh. What an ingenious use of the BG text on kraft and that glorious glittered rose. It reminds me of that eye-catching B&W photography with one element in color (often a red rose). Your card is top notch.
