September 2014 Diva Dare ~ Day 10

Terrific Trios - September Diva Dare

Hi Verve fans and welcome to September's Diva Dare!  It's Andrea here with you bringing this month's dare which is entitled Terrific Trios.  Back to school time usually means life is a 3 ring circus, so this month we're daring you to add 3 of something to your card or project. 



I started off by cutting out the focal frame with Verve's Rounded Scallop Frame. I took the outside scalloped edge, distressed the edge with ink and then sprayed it with Elmer's glue. I then sprinkled some coarse glitter over it. The sentiment is from Wonderful Marvelous and for that frame I inked the edges and then added some White Opal liquid pearls. Turns out that the liquid pearls interacted with the ink and they turned green! Ugh! In a fit of mild anger, I scraped off the dots with my finger nail. It actually adds to the distressed look so we'll chalk that up to a happy mistake. :) The floral accent consists of silk ribbon with paper flowers attached. I added some pulled apart gauze to the base of the card and then added strips of paper.


Two ways to win prizes for double the fun!

Win a $40 gift voucher to Verve! Take our Terrific Trios dare and link your card up to be eligible to win.  Entries must have 3 of something on your card or project, be posted 9/12 or later, include at least one Verve product and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 10/01/14.  One participant will be randomly selected to win the gift voucher.  You can enter as many times as you like, but each card needs to be in a separate post.

  11. Stunning card! You said "spray the card with Elmer's Glue" Is that a special glue or watered down regular Elmer's?
