Then every head turned with eyes that dreamed of being the one...who will dance on the floor in the round...

Happy Friday, y'all! I don't know about you, but this has been a busy week. Whew! Today is the day of the newest release from Verve Stamps, and you won't want to miss this!

This is the card I posted on the Verve Blog for a Sneak Preview of a new set called Forever in Our Hearts. Check out the posts over there for chances to win the new sets as well!

Isn't that a gorgeous image? I wanted to try a different approach than normal, so I misted my watercolor paper with water first, then colored my image with Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke, and Real Red markers and stamped it on the wet paper. Once the paper was dry, I colored the image again and re-stamped a clearer image over the top of the softened one. This technique is an old favorite, and it worked perfectly for the look I was going for. I finished the card off with the large branch image and a sentiment from this set. I think this would be a great encouragement card in addition to a sympathy card...the beauty of Julee's wonderfully thoughtful stamps.

We'd love you to join us tonight in the Verve Forum for the Release Party. We'll start hanging out at 8 PM Central, and I'm sure there will be some prizes too! I'd love to see you there!

Have a wonderful day!
