July 2015 Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop

It's time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop! 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 rest of the month to link up, so feel free to play as often as you like.
Our July challenge is Sensational Stripes
Stripes go with everything! Make them nautical, or pair with florals for a graphic look. Use stripes however you're inspired! Use the inspiration graphic or head off in your own direction, just show us your stripes! 


I used the stripes in the color inspiration piece as my inspiration! I cut out four strips of cardstock and layed them down at alternating heights, then stamped the background from Deco Borders in Versamark ink for a tone on tone look. I adhered the pieces down with foam tape. Next, I cut out some flowers with the Floral Notes Die Set and stamped the coordinating floral images from Floral Notes and colored them in with Tombow markers. The sentiment is also from Floral Notes!
