...Verve August Sneak Peek #1

This is one of the new sets that will be released this month from Verve Stamps...it is called Express Yourself. I love this girly set, so I wanted to use some colors that screamed femininity! I decided on Melon Mambo, Whisper White, and Basic Black. The shoe, the sentiment, and the flourish were stamped in Basic Black Craft Ink, then embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun. I colored the shoe with an Aquapainter, cut it out, then popped it up off of the focal panel using Dimensionals. The outlined circle in the background was created with the Circle Scissors Plus and a Glass Mat. I added Melon Mambo Dotted Ribbon and Hot Pink Rhinestones to complete the card.

Stay tuned each day this week to see more sneak peeks of the fabulous sets that Julee has designed...she is one incredibly talented lady! You can also see what the other Divas have been doing with the same sets at the Verve Blog...go check them out!
