Feeling Groovy

Happy Wednesday!! Don't forget - today is release day at Verve! Four new sets are now available, and as usual, Julee has a special discount available when you buy the whole June Collection (37 stamps in all!). Also, be sure to check out the new Plain Janes, a series of single stamps. The first is Psalm 37:4, done in a gorgeous type treatment so typical of Verve!

Today's card uses stamps from Verve's new Feeling Groovy set. When I saw all the super fun sentiments in this set, I almost looked right over the two flower images that are also included. Am I so glad I took a second look, because I love how this card turned out!! I made it exactly a week ago, using both last week's SCS color challenge (Kraft, Soft Sky, Black) and last week's SCS sketch challenge. Even as I was making it, I knew how hard it would be to sit on it for a week. But -- time flies, and here we are today, when I can finally show it!

The flowers are stamped and trimmed, then popped up on dimensionals. I dotted the centers with a white gel pen. It's hard to see in the photo, but I colored in the petals on the flowers with a Stardust glitter pen, which really makes the card sing in real life! The stems are made from a very narrow 1/8" black grosgrain. The sentiment stamp is designed on two lines. I inked each half separately with a marker so I could get it all on one line to fit the word window punch.

Have a great day!
