Okay...craziness...I don't normally post three times in one day, but just realized the challenge is about to expire...so I apologize up front for the number of posts!
On Thursday night, my new Verve goodies arrived, so I immediately had to get inky. Oh how I've missed getting some new Verve...so now I have a whole pile of goodness to play with...you'll be seeing a lot of it! I decided to start by playing along with current Runway Inspired Challenge. I was inspired by the leaves and touches of color on the model's blouse and the pop of orange on her purse. So for the card above I added blue gems to the strongly contrasted black leaves and a touch of orange on the sentiment label. I love how these layer so perfectly!
My second card (which was actually the first for the challenge) takes the colors and makes them center stage. I wasn't too happy with the result...so I made the first one above! :) Does that ever happen to you? What you visualize in your head doesn't translate as well to paper? :)
