Viva la Verve February Week 1



Amber has provided a fabulous sketch for the first week of February. (okay, so it's not Feb. yet, but this challenge is starting off next weeks' sketch challenges). Check it out HERE.


I decided to use some older Verve images this week. The sentiment "fabulous (just the way you are)" is from the set Love's Flower, and was stamped with Smokey Gray Versafine.
I stamped the flower, from the set One Person, with Vintage Cream ink (PTI), cut it out, crinkled it up and added a pearl brad and some Stardust Stickles.

I added some texture to the Circle that is framed with the Spellbinders die Lacey Circles, sewed around each panel, and added some Vellum flourishes that I made using Sizzix's Flourish #9 die. The lace is from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the dp is all Webster's. I also added a border punch along the bottom (I know..not surprised are ya?), with an EK Success border punch.

That about sums this baby up. Be sure to check out the VLV forum over on Splitcoaststampers for all the sketch details.

Have a super weekend my friends!!
Happy Stamping!
Tosh
