Verve Spotlight Hop Day 4 ~ Hope Blooms

It's the final day of the Verve Spotlight Hops. I hope ya'll are as excited about these new releases as I am. There is such a variety of images and sentiments!! Be sure to join us tonight for the release party . You won't want to miss all the fun!! And don't forget to leave a comment on each blog, in order to be entered to win some Verve!!

Today I'm featuring the Verve set Hope Blooms. There are 3 sizes of this gorgeous flower making it easy to color and layer. I stamped the flower with Versamark onto Watercolor paper and colored it with my Tombows. I then added some Cotton Candy Stickles to give it a bit of sparkle....(I know...quite the shocker...*grin*) And, of course, the sentiments are fantastic!! I framed my sentiment with the Spellbinders' Labels 18 die, and sponged Old Paper Ranger Distress Ink in the embossed areas.


Lastly, I added some lace, pearls and rhinestones, along with a punched border. That about sums it up. Here's a list of the rest of the divas who are hopping today.


1. Julee 8. Jackie
