So in celebration of peace and quiet this morning, I am playing along with a challenge -Viva la Verve. All the layers and angles on this one are a little out of my comfort zone - but my great friend Stacey Schafer created it and I'm going to give it a try. While I'm jumping out of the box, I decided to go all the way and I used four patterned papers, buttons, sequins, wood dots, ribbon and twine!
It was a stretch - but I like it!!
The cardstock and the ink are new-to-me from Simon Says Stamp. I decided to give some of their inks a try and I'm always a sucker for a good neutral. They have a nice feature on their blog called Color Coordinates. Shari Carroll looks through their store's stock and finds papers/washi tape/stickers/dots and much more that coordinate with one of their colors - I think it's weekly and they have done four colors so far. I am still in mourning over the loss of Archivers so I particularly like this feature as I can no longer match things in person. The patterned paper is one of the suggestions for their Khaki color.
