February Verve Diva Inspiration Hop!


Diva Hop


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 March 5 to link up, so feel free to play as often as you like.



The pop of color in this industrial style loft speaks of the hope of spring in the midst of winter. Kind of like February... it's still cold and wintry, but new life is on the horizon. Feel free to take your inspiration from the photo or the color combo, whatever suits your fancy! We can't wait to see what you create.

With this inspiration photo, I loved the florals and color.  I went with a lightly sponged polka dot background in grey.  I white heat embossed flowers from Surely Goodness and watercolored with Distress Inks.  I added some watercolored diecut leaves from Leafy Sprigs and added them behind my flowers.  My sentiment, from Poppy Birthday, was stamped in grey ink onto my sponged background.  A few sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh were added as an embellishment.
