Well I have enjoyed the first two Verve Divas explain their thought process, so I decided to play along. I can't say I have ever really thought about this before. First I really like to start with a challenge. For this card I saw this challenge over on Stamp TV. It was to use red, black and white.
Once I get my challenge or challenges that I want to do together, I then look at the list of cards I need to make. I usually make cards for someone not just because. It really makes me feel good to send them out and I really like remembering others and blessing others in this way. So this is for our friends Kelly and Geoff. Once I get to this point, I look through my stamps for something that will work for what I needed.
I just got my newest Verve stamps and in it was Kindered Spirits. I really liked the images. I loved this center piece, but I think I am now going to need oval nesties LOL! If any of you have this set, will this work on the center piece? Anyway, the card just flowed from that point on.
It's a good life!
