March Diva Dare-Day 4

Welcome to Day 4 of the March Diva Dare!! Here's how our Diva Dare works... following each release, we post a theme we dare you with, and you'll have two weeks to complete the challenge. During those two weeks, the release team will post their creations and tell you how they answered the dare!

This month we dare you to make a card, project, layout, or whatever fits your stamping style using this month's theme - Color Me Spring! Whether you are shoveling snow off of your sidewalks and only dreaming of warmer weather or you are already enjoying the first blooms of the season, this challenge is sure to put a spring in your step! How you interpret the challenge is up to you! Stay tuned to learn how you could win some shiny new Verve!!

This is how I answered the dare...


Hello Verve fans, it is Teresa and I answered the dare by creating an Egg-Stra Special Flower Pot.  This is little flower pot reminds me of spring, I adore my pots of flowers and hanging baskets.  It may be several more weeks for us, yesterday we had a skip of snow....sigh.  I started with a small paper mache pot and painted it with cream colored acyclic paint, keeping it kinda of messy.  I used the Egg-Stra Special set for my flowers, yes...you read it correct...the eggs from that set are the blooms for my flowers....so cute!  The Charming Oval Die is used to cut the egg shape.  I covered them with my favorite glass glitter and a button tied with twine.   







The butterfly is from the Chicks Rule set and is cut out using the Flutterby Die.  I completed the butterfly with a diamond shaped gemstone.  The tiny heart are stamped and cut out of the Egg-Stra Special set too.  I used small wooden dowels for the flower stems and florist wire for the butterfly and hearts.  I finished the flower pot by tying crinkled ribbon and Prima lace to the pot, so, so sweeet!   I have this sitting in my kitchen window ledge, it is my little "Color Me Spring."  I cannot wait to see what you create!

  1. Play along with us and link up your new Color Me Spring creation (posted March 28 or later) to the linky widget on the DAY 1 POST before midnight MST on Sunday, April 10.
