Verve challenge using Wplus9
I am finally getting myself in my craft room to start playing around. I started by using a new set I finally bought from Wplus9 (Mendhi Medallions). I have been wanting this set since it first came out and finally got to use it.
I started the day by organizing all my PTI colors (cardstock) and then making a "book" of all the colors so it is easy to flip through and decide a great color combo. I am also going to copy my mom and sister and put the copic colors on the label so I know which ones to use.
So, I was reading Lorie's blog and decided to get a good start on cards again by using Julee, from Verve stamps, sketch. It was fun and easy.
I wanted to go monochromatic with a neutral color. I decided on the blues, ocean tides, hawaiian shores and aqua mist. The base is Smokey shadow (love that color and wish I had bought the ink before they stopped selling it, now I have to wait a few more months). I also used vintage cream for the sentiment.
I think I used just about every element in the Mendhi Medallion set because I love it so much. Even the sentiment is in the set. Again, if you have not had a chance to try out their stamps, run, do not walk over to their site and try just one. They are priced VERY reasonably and so easy to use.
