Zva Creative June DT Blog Hop

Zva Creative and my fellow Design Team members welcome you to our June blog hop! We are excited about it and look forward to sharing our new work with you!

Today's Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's blogBe sure head on over to check it out! You will also find a complete list of all the participating blogs there (in case there is a glitch along the way). 

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.
My color assignment for this month is pink. I couldn't think of a more appropriate color as it's one of my favorites! I did a little manipulating with some pearl lines to come up with this card here:


The large pink pearls on the scalloped oval were cut from a strip of pink pearl lines. The inner oval was also using these pearl lines, albeit these were the smaller version and just kind of coerced into turning some corners. At the top and bottom where the curve was sharper, I had to cut the strip and lay down 2 to 3 pearls at a time so that they would lay right. I took those same small white pearl lines and outlined the outer perimeter of the card as well. 

Here are the Zva Creative products I used:
PEW-03CB-117 (White Pearl Lines 0.3cm)
PE-02CB-108 (Hot Pink/Soft Pink Pearl lines (0.3cm & 0.5cm)


If you would like to play along with our design team, just follow along the blog path.  I am linking to one of the Zva designers and that designer is linking to the next and so on. Be prepared to be inspired along the way!
