March Verve Diva Inspiration Hop and some news!

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



After a few month of winter, nothing soothes the soul like a burst of vibrant color. This boho kids bedroom does that and more! 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.

NEWS:  This is my THIRD anniversary being a Verve Diva and I have decided to step down.  This was not an easy decision as I can vividly remember the email from Julee extending a welcome email opportunity for the Verve Inspiration Team.  It was the perfect fit!!  I love my Verve!  So, this is my LAST Inspirations Blog Hop!  :(  Thank you Julee for 3 wonderful years!

With this month's inspiration photo, I could not let it go by without doing more watercolor stripes.  I sure hope you aren't tired of me sharing them with you!  Just look at those vibrant stripes in that bedding!!!!  So in the spirit of stripes, I watercolored Twisted Citron, Wilted Violet, and Salty Ocean onto watercolor paper in a pattern that resembles the bedding.  To keep the bold vibe going, I stamped the sentiment from Be Blessed in Versafine Onyx Black in the center.  A butterfly from Blue Skies was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black, heat embossed with clear embossing powder, and die cut using the All Aflutter dies.  This give a TRUE black embossed image!  Love the results!  I watercolored my butterfly with the same color palette as the background and added some black rhinestones for "bling".
