Ecclesiastes 3:11 ~ Verve Sneak Peek {MTSC94}



Hi there!  It's Tuesday and it's time for another one of Mercy's sketches!  I also have a super sneak peek of a beautiful new Plain Jane from Verve, Ecclesiastes 3:11.  The official sneak peeks for Verve start tomorrow but we were given the go ahead to start with the Plain Jane's a little early!!

I won't lie and say this sketch was easy for me, but I am happy with the end result!  I had a really hard time with the five panels in the back, but I worked it out!   I'm not much of a distresser, but I started so I couldn't stop!  What do you think?

The Verse was stamped in Dark Chocolate on Rustic Cream cardstock, cut out with Rectangle Nesties and sponged with Tea Dye Distress ink while still in the die.  The flowers are from Great Friend and were paper pieced with some October Afternoon dp.  I added a button and some twine to the center.  Some machine stitching finishes it off!

The sneak peeks for Verve start tomorrow!  You can check out the Verve blog tomorrow to see which design team members will be participating each day.  It wouldn't be a Verve Release without some Release Week Challenges!  You can check it out here.  Can't wait for you to see all of the new goodness!!

Don't forget to check out my fellow Muse's for more inspiration with this sketch and please give a big welcome to our new Guest Muse for October, Heather Pulvirenti!  Welcome, Heather!!
