July Verve Diva Inspiration Hop!


Inspiration Hop2 

It's time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop! There are two ways to win Verve prizes: comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) to see their take on the inspiration, then go get inky and link up your take on the challenge to be eligible in our prize drawings! You have the rest of the month to link up, so feel free to play as often as you like.



Our July challenge is Sensational Stripes

Stripes go with everything! Make them nautical, or pair with florals for a graphic look. Use stripes however you're inspired! Use the inspiration graphic or head off in your own direction, just show us your stripes!

What a fun inspiration challenge!  I decided to pull in stripes for my background using pattern paper.  I watercolored some butterflies from Blue Skies and trimmed out by hand.  I attached some silver thread for the body and antenna.  The butterflies were layered onto layered Tagged Rectangle Dies.  My sentiment, from Borderline, was white heat embossed and cut using the Flag It Die Set.

I just got this butterfly stamp and was unsure what to do with it. Love the embossing! Great card, great inspiration. TFS!

Lovely clean and crisp card. Your stripe element fits in just right not taking away from the simple tag and butterfly combo. Just wonderful.
