Vintage Verve - OCC

The incredibly talented girls at the OCC have posted a fun mid-week challenge to use the Vintage Values technique on a Verve project. You use 2-3 shades of the same color ink and a craft sponge. The idea is to keep the darker shades towards the edges and the effect creates a glow on the lighter, middle area of your sponged cardstock. Very cool! I chose to go with peachy/orange tones and highlight the embossed pumpkins. All of their cards turned out really gorgeous! I had never tried this technique before, but I think it would be very fun to try in different colors. My card is very simple, but sometimes simple is fine by me!

Cardstock: PTI, Bazzill; Stamps: Verve; Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, CTMH; Cuttlebug embossing folder; SU! ticket punch. Other: Flower, gold brads, craft sponge, paper piercer.


  1. Fantastic card!
    Hugs and smiles

  2. This is just gorgeous. The sponging really sets off that beautiful embossed panel. Thanks so much for playing! :)
