Mojo Sketch 27 and New Verve Stamps!

How is your weekend going? Ours has been's an absolutely beautiful day here in Central Oregon! Feels like spring is coming! :)

So I ordered this set from Verve Visual when it was released last weekend...isn't it a gorgeous set? Julee has incredible stamps. If you've never checked them out, you must! Go...go...well, wait. Let me tell you about this little beauty, and then you can go! :)

Julee has a sketch challenge every Monday that she calls Mojo Monday. I've never participated, but decided this was the week to give it a shot! Plus, on the first Monday of the month she picks two winners and they get to pick a stamp set of their choice from Verve Visual! What better incentive to try my hand at one of her sketches?!?

I had a HECK of a time getting a good picture of this card, and unfortunately you STILL can't see the sentiment. :( It's from this set and says, "Sending you smiles." So CUTE!
The base of the card is old olive. Then I layered a piece of Ginger Blossom DP on that. The main image is stamped in ruby red onto groovy guava on the base, and then I stamped it onto whisper white and used a blender pen to color it in with groovy guavy. Since this tends to make the color look "flat," I pressed the whole thing into a Versamark pad and then embossed it with clear empossing powder. Did exactly the same thing with the little one in the center. Of course, my white gel pen made its typical appearance!

Thanks for looking! :) Now GO...get to Verve!

I love the card and the colours. Checkout out blogs is "enabling". Now I have another stamp company to look at.

I am glad it is like spring where you are. It has been snowing here for 31 hours now. I QUIT!

Great card! The colors are so warm and inviting. I like how your white dotted perimeter picks up the dots in the background paper. Great job! (And by the way, do you have the most beautiful eyes EVER?! It's like, kinda sorta not fair, LOL!)
