Verve Sneak Peek



I've been wanting to try a Michelle Zindorf-inspired brayered scene for a while now, and the silhouette images from Verve's upcoming Abundant Blessings set were just the added motivation to dig out my brayer and get to work. If you haven't seen Michelle's tutorials, there is a wonderful one on SCS and many more on her blog, Freedom in Creating. They take you through each step of the process. I added some Stardust Stickles to the water so it would glisten, just like the ocean under a moonlit sky. The moon, which is an ivory circle sponged with hints of yellow and blue, holds a sentiment from another upcoming set called So Happy. With its mix-and-match format, So Happy is destined to become a staple in many stamp rooms.

Be sure to pay a visit to the Verve blog today, where you'll see bunches of Abundant Blessings and So Happy samples by some of the other Verve Divas and have a chance to win both of today's previewed sets. Tomorrow on the blog, you'll find peeks of two more sets, plus a chance to win those two sets. Then, tomorrow evening at 10 pm EST, you're invited to join us in the Verve Forum on SCS for our release party and even more chances to win prizes. Speaking of prizes ... what would you think of winning the ENTIRE RELEASE? That's the prize for the current One-Sheet Wonder challenge. You can find all the details HERE!
