Verve June Spotlight Hop ~ Day 4


Welcome back to Day 4 of Verve's June 2014 Spotlight Hops!  The Verve Divas and special guests are back for another day of spotlighting the new holiday release! And the wait is almost over... everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store on Friday, 6/19. So come hop along with us and see our first looks at today's featured products!

Today's spotlight is shining on The Buzz set illustrated by Julee Tilman, as well as the coordinating The Buzz Die Set and Proverbs 16:24 plain jane.

I've always loved the saying "You're the Bee's Knees" so you can imagine how thrilled I was to see this new set, The Buzz.  I created a watercolour background using distress inks and the smooshing technique.  Once the ink was dry (with the help of my heat tool), I stamped the honeycomb image and the sentiment.  I stamped the bee hive onto patterned paper, cut it out and glued it onto the bee hive die cut.  The little tag was stamped with the smallest bee image and tied to a yummy bow.
