May Memories Comfort You for VLV
For the Viva la Verve! August Week 4 sketch challenge:
I wanted to keep the color palette muted, but also wanted to stay away from black. The dark grey of PTI's Smokey Shadow cardstock served as a perfect base. I used papers from MME and Cosmo Cricket. My favorite part was stamping the leaves from Verve's Sunny Days in Versamark and embossing with SU's pewter embossing powder on vellum, then cutting with the matching Leafy Sprigs Dies. The vellum kind of disappears into the background, and you are left with these so very elegant dark antique silver looking embellishments. The sentiment is embossed with the same, but on the patterned paper.
The small cream border peeking out from under the main panel was cut with the edge of Verve's Classy Label Die. A string of tiny pearls and two larger ones in the top corner keep it understated but elegant.
