As you know, Zva offers many beautiful color groupings for pearls, flowers and crystals. If you like what you see along the hop you can find a list of stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.
I decided to make two projects today, this month the designers are using a color story of their choice so my first instinct was to go with my usual first instincts, clear crystals and white pearls. Both of my projects are using new Zva that was released at CHA in January:
This tag was made with a base of Melissa Frances' Attic Treasures paper, roughed up around the edges and my signature 'flower cluster' which consists of a Prima flower surrounded by various silk/paper flowers and stamens. The crystal flourish is called, simply, Flourishes. I also added some of those flower shaped crystals, which are also new...they're called Mini Flowers. There's a bit of antique lace, a wooden heart and some hemp as ancillary details. The sentiment is from Verve's Fairy Tales set. As a last minute thought, I attached a heart shaped doily behind the tag.
This project uses:
CR-06CA-101 (Flourishes-Crystal Clear)
CRW-06CA-148 (Mini Flowers Crystal-Clear)
For this card, I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch. I also used Maja Design's new Vintage Spring collection papers. I kept the color scheme rather light, only using the 3 colors. There are 2 Zva Creative flowers glued together with a Natural Jute bow/heart locket attached as well. The banner is called Pennant Trim die from Verve. Sentiment is also courtesy of Verve's Egg-stra Special set. I attached pearl flourishes and dots to accent the card.
Zva Creative products used:
CRB-06CA-111 (Flourish-White Pearl)
FL-04CA-135 (1.5" Graceful Roses- Taupe)
PE-02CB-101 (Dots-Pearl (White) 0.3cm, 0.5cm & 0.8cm)
