June Diva Dare ~ Day 6

Hi there, friends! Welcome to Day 6 of the June Diva Dare! 

 This month's dare pays tribute to Diva Jen (Deconstructing Jen) and Diva Janelle (Rain Puddles Design) both have an amazing eye for colour. Jen's colouring is phenomenal and Janelle's showcases mixed media like no other. So what we're daring you to create this month is a card using colouring and/or painting.  If you want to kick the dare up a notch, you can add kraft card stock to the mix (Jen's specialty) and/or make a mixed media card (Janelle's specialty).  Here is the link to Splitcoast Stamper's "Mix-Ability" Forum for some tutorials and ideas on Mixed Media should you want to try it out.  This is not a requirement but a fun "extra" should you wish to add it to your card. Just remember to use at least one Verve product on your creation! 


For my project, I knew I wanted to create a canvas! This is just a small 5x7 canvas I got at Joann's for 2.99 on sale, score! I painted it black (and have some white stripes on the sides for interest, you'll see that in the next couple pictures) and then just built it up like I would a card.


The sentiment and flowers are all from "Let it Be".


I also used some of the black polka dot ribbon from the Polka Dot Basics ribbon collection. I finished the piece off with some rhinestones, buttons, and twine!


Deadline to link your cards is 5PM Mountain on Thursday, June 27.  Entries must be new (posted 6/11 or later), include at least one Verve product, include some type of colouring/painting (with an option of adding kraft cardstock or mixed media, but this is not required) and be linked up to thelinky widget by 5pm Mountain on 6/27/13. 


During this month's Diva Dare, there are 2 prizes up for grabs!


Win a $40 Gift Certificate to Verve Stamps! Take our Puddles of Colour Dare and link up your card (created June 11th or later) to the linky widget to be eligible to win.  One participant will be randomly selected to win the gift certificate.  You can enter as many times as you like, but each card needs to be in a separate post.

Win a set of your choice! For another chance to win some new Verve, leave a little comment love on our design team's "Puddles of Colour" Diva Dare posts!  One lucky commenter will win a Verve stamp set of his or her choice, so be sure to tune in each day!  Comment deadline to be entered in our prize drawing is June 27, 2013.


Winners will be announced on June 28, 2013.

- Go forth and get inky! We DARE you! -
