Ann~-VERVE~sary Spotlight Hop - Day 8

Click HERE for my Waltzingmouse Sneak Peek ~ Day 3


It's day 8 of the Spotlight hops and the release is just around the corner!! Woot!! Don't forget to stop by the Verve Forum tomorrow evening for some fun chats and the announcement of the winners. Today we're featuring a fabulously fun set called Borderline, along with a variety of dies: Mini Classy Label die, Mini Vintage Oval die, and the Mini Bookplate die.

I thought it would be fun to use some Pearl Ex powders on black cardstock with this fabulous arrow design. I just stamped the arrow strip vertically using Versamark, and with a paint brush, added some Pearl Ex powder. I then sprayed aerosol hairspray over it to set it. So easy and fun!! Lastly I added a sentiment framed with the Mini Classy Label die, along with some black twine. Clean and simple.

That's it for today. Tomorrow is the last day to hop and to participate in the challenges to win some Verve. So don't delay!!

Definitely a CAS look, but it doesn't sound like it was particularly CAS to make... Worth the effort, though. It's gorgeous!
