Blue & Green

The Viva La Verve Sketch was a fun one this week.  The sketch itself was fairly simple, and the twist was to use the colors blue & green.

I chose the tulips from the Verve set Floral Symphony, and stamped them lightly in Moss and Bashful Blue.  The word are stamped in Navy to make them pop.  I ran the Moss layer through my cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder.  I love applying pieces with the raised dots facing downward for a different look.  I distressed the edges with my grapefruit knife and sponged some moss to darken them.

The brads and button are by Basic Grey, as well as the dp.  I even pulled out some of my moss gingham ribbon!! :)

This week will be busy here, so our blog posting might be a little sporadic.  We're getting ready to leave for 3 days to attend and participate in a wedding, so stamping will have to take a backseat to preparations.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!
