Verve Divas October 2015 Inspiration Challenge - Hello Pumpkin

Hi Everyone!!

There are two ways to win Verve prizes: comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) to see their take on the inspiration, then go get inky and link up your take on the challenge to be eligible in our prize drawings! You have the until November 5 to link up, so feel free to play as often as you like.

Our October challenge is Black, White and Glam
October always has a bit of glamour and intrigue to it. A stroll through the craft store this time of year brings visions of glitzy pumpkins, gilded candelabras and rhinestones galore. So this month we’re challenging you to to get glamorous with black, white and metallics. Use the inspiration graphic or go off on your own tangent, just share a little bit of glam with us!


For my card today I used the awesome pumpkins from the Bountiful Harvest stamp set from Verve stamps. I kept the card black, white and silver - except for the pumpkins - I tried to keep them more muted and on the grayscale. The sentiment was embossed with white detail powder and then I finished it with some bling here are there for stars in the sky: so much fun to create this!




Card Ingredients:
Stamp set: Bountiful Harvest stamp set from Verve stamps
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and copics
Papers: Silver gray cardstock and Bazzill black/white cardstock
Accessories: bling, sponger, MS grass punch, corner chomper, white embossing powder
