December Verve Diva Inspiration Hop!

Diva 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 until January 5 to link up, so feel free to play as often as you like.

Our December challenge is Cup of Kindness


Everywhere you look this time of year there's a flurry of color. Shiny ornaments, twinkling Christmas lights, window displays decked out in the merriest of brights. And not to mention all the sweet little wassail, hot cocoa, tea and coffee cups all around. So this month we're challenging you to share a cup of kindness with us. Get inspired by the graphic or blaze your own color trail, just show us some colorful creations!

I've used a combination of several Verve sets to create my card.  I started with this bold black tag from Holiday Treats and stamped a sentiment from Coffee.  My little stack of cups (from One Cup) were stamped, diecut, and colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  Everything was adhered to a watercolored background of Distress Inks.....Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron, and Salty Ocean.  And finally, I added a black glittered "Coffee" diecut sentiment!  (Iridescent sequins from Pretty Pink Posh)
