Welcome back to Day 5 of our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops! It's an exciting day as there's new Verve in the store this morning! 4 beautiful new sets and 2 coordinating die sets just released and they're all available to order right now. To celebrate this special 10th Anni-VERVE-sary release, we're putting on another blog hop, with a pretty cool prize!
Today's featured focus is designer's choice, so you might just sneak a peek at a whole bunch of must-haves, especially since we've got a full line-up of Divas, guests and Alumni today!
I am sharing another card made using the Bloom Brighter and coordinating Blooming Die from Verve. I can't stop white heat embossing these flowers and using watercolors! After heat embossing on some Bristol Smooth watercolor paper, I smooshed some Distress Oxide inks in Spiced Marmalade, Abandoned Coral, Wilted Violet, and Peeled Paint onto an acetate sheet. Using my waterbrush, I simply colored in the blooms and leaves, letting them dry in between applications. I love the opaque look and shading these inks give when watercolored! I added my blooms to a trimmed white panel that had some Nuvo Embellishment Paste applied to the background for a shimmery look (applied with my finger). My sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black and clear heat embossed.
