A flower blooms..


Thanks for stopping by for a visit on the Verve Blop Hop to celebrate the Big 2nd Anniversary of the special company.You made it here from Gretchen.
I worked on more paper designing and created my card for today. I used the Verve stamp All the Flowers of Tomorrow...It's one of the Plain Jane stamps and the price is $3.00.The card itself was edged with a sponge with ink. The flower was punched using the Marvy Scalloped Circle(purple). A ribbon spool was used to trace a circle for the center of the flower.Curvy stems were cut freehand and the leaves were torn by hand. Finally the two side flowers were torn in three separate circles, each one a bit smaller than the next, crumpled and smoothed out and fastened together using brads.Just a bit of glue and lovely glue dots to put it together and it was done!
The card details:
Cardstock:Bazzill-light blue, spring green,olive,and some peach and white cardstock from the scrap box.
Ink:Archival Ink -sepia
Brads(unknown)
Thanks for your visit, it's my first blog hop to be a part of in addition to hopping just for myself.Now it is time for a little more Verve-y goodness .
Your next stop is Becky @www.lakeshorestamper.com
