Viva La Verve July Week 2
This is my Poppin’ Pastel response for the Anni-VERVE-sary VLVJUL02 Challenge. Now THIS one really WAS a challenge. I bombed on the Burnt Batik method – but did find I liked the BACK side of the batik – so will revisit that technique at a later date. I employed the poppin' pastel technique instead.
Base card is vanilla – with edges smudged. (I don’t think I can use or attaché ANYTHING without smudge the edges first – what’s up with THAT????) DP layer is BasicGrey Blush.
Turquoise cardstock is adhered to dark brown cardstock. I embossed the turquoise with Ranger Clear and then restamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Ranger Enamelware.
The print ribbon was in a dollar bin at Michael’s – this was then threaded through a button.
The circular layers consist of a circle of SU! Chocolate Chip, a dark brown (again – smudged edges) scallop punched, a white circle using the Poppin’ Pastel technique with SU! Big Pieces. I dotted the scallop centers with Crystal Effects. The center is a brad from Oriental Trading. The tiny flowers were punched with Michael's $ bin punch. Tiny black dot centers with ink pen.
I have to admit this was more challenge than fun – but it is what it is. Now I’m off the think about VLVJul03! Thank you for clickin’ in!

Wow!! This is a super, eye-catching card. I have that Basic Grey Blush print, too!! (And *love* it--of course, I don't think I've ever seen a Basic Grey paper I didn't like!). Anyway, all of your hard work really shows. Great work!! :)
