January 2012 Verve Spotlight Release ~ Day 2




(If you click on the photo, you can see the silver and sparkle better.)

It's Day 2 of Verve's Jan. Spotlight hop, and One lucky commenter from each day's hop will win the sets and dies featured that day, so be sure and leave a little love in the Divasphere! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and deadlines.

Today the divas are featuring a Plain Jane, and a fun set called Wings of Love. There's a matching die set called Wavy Hearts too. I snuck in an extra image and frame that will be peaked tomorrow. So shhhhhhhh....it just fit with the idea I had in my head. What can I say? :)

I started by inking the winged heart, from the Wings of Love set, with Versamark, and embossed it with silver. The sentiment frame was done the same way. I then used a Salmon Pearl Pen, from Viva Decor, to fill in the heart center, and some crystal glitter for the wings. The "Happy Valentine's Day" sentiment is a Plain Jane, and was stamped using Papaya Cream Pigment Ink by Colorbox. It's framed with a new Verve image and die as well as a die from Spellbinders' Twisted Metal Tags and accents.

I then added some sweet little sentiment pieces from the Wings of love set: "my angel." and "cherish." I made this for my daughter (who I call "angel") who is away at college, and she's not a "pink" type of girl, so I'm hoping the salmon color and soft green/blue background fits her style more.

That about sums up today's card. Be sure to check out the other Diva's blogs if you haven't already!! :)
