Happy Saturday! AND...happy March!! You all are probably tired of hearing me say this...but can you believe it's already MARCH???!! Wasn't it just Christmas? LOL!
Today is the release date for three brand new Verve Visual sets!
Julee (owner of Verve), challenged the Design Team to make a "Back to Basics" card. In a nutshell, it's a card that is an "un-complicated, easy to reproduce card that uses techniques/ideas that we loved when we first started to stamp". Something that I was immediately drawn to when I first started stamping, was monochromatic cards. Not only are they very visually appealing to me, but they are great for someone who doesn't have ALL of the stamping pads and papers known to man yet! LOL!
This card is stamped with the new Thankful Blossoms set. I chose Real Red as my "color" and white as my "neutral". For those of you that are new to the term monochromatic...it just means "to have or to appear to have only one color". I've always know what it means...generally..but thought I'd look it up for the correct wording. I have to tell you that I just LOVE that they included "or appear to have"!!! LOL!!! Now THAT would be a challenge...make a many colored card that "appeared" to have only one! LOL! I used embellishments that I had on hand when I was first starting out...ribbon, buttons, & thread (what most people would have in a sewing box). The piercing is something that I have just recently picked up (like in the last year or two) but again, you could use a needle, which most people already have as well.
I hope you all enjoy your weekend!! ~Laurie
