Diva Dare and Curtain Call Reminder!


Hey everyone!  I’m a busy girl today playing Diva Dare hostess AND reminding everyone that there is one more week for the current Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.  Head over to the Verve Blog for more deets about this card that I had SO MUCH FUN creating for the DH!  Both the Diva Dare and Curtain Call Challenges are asking us to get “Smitten!”  Well, I’ve been smitten over my darling husband for coming up 8 years :)  I was thinking about Photo Booth apps and found a real easy, free one called Pici booth.  Then I thought it would be fun to hold some large “Sweetheart” candies with little sweet sayings on them.  I made these extra large sweethearts, pulled out my red feather boa, and had fun with my new app :)  I couldn’t figure out how to print these out any smaller, so I just cut the strip into two then tucked them into a little vellum pocket. 


To create my background, I took several Verve hearts from the No Matter What set and embossed them in gold.  Then I took 4 different gelatos and scribbled over the embossed hearts.  Last, I took my aqua pen and did a water wash to blend all the colours.  I got this technique from Dawn McVey HERE!  Head over to the Curtain Call Inspiration blog for all the deets on this week’s challenge!  Thanks for stopping by!
