Verve Stamps August 2017 Spotlight Hops

I am so excited to be once again sharing a VERVE project here on my blog to help celebrate Julee's 10th Anni-VERVE-sary!  I spent 3 awesome years designing for Verve and I can still remember opening the email from Julee inviting me to the team! ♥♥

Using the new Bloom Brighter stamp set and Blooming coordinating dies, I've white heat embossed the flowers onto Bristol Smooth watercolor paper.  To add color, I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a waterbrush.  After die cutting, I arranged my flowers onto the right lower corner of a trimmed white panel.  My sentiment is stamped in bold black using Versafine Onyx Black.  My whole panel was adhered to a top folding notecard layered with a soft grey polka dot paper.  For that finishing touch, a few clear confetti were added with Multi Medium Matte.
