Its A DeNami Kinda Day...

Two card today that I made using stamps from DeNami Design.  The first card is for the current Sentimental Sundays challenge "winter" or more specifically what winter is like in your part of the world.  Well in my part of the world, the Pacific Northwest, winter means rain!   Occasionally we have snow in the lowlands, but not very often.   So, for my card I got out my super cute DeNami stamp Mimi in the Rain.  I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored her with some Copic Markers (RV00, RV02, Y21, G21, E21 & E37).    My intention had been to use Mimi for the current DeNami sketch challenge, but unfortunately that didn't work out.   The sentiment was computered generated.



So.... darn!  I had to make a second card!  This one for the sketch.  I used one of my favorite DeNami stamps "Leafy Vine Wreath".  I stamped it in Memento Pear Tart and added a bit of color with YG00.  I combined the image with PTI's Simply Chartruse patterned paper and ribbon and kraft cardstock.  A bit of bling was added, as well.   Overall I like how the card turned out.

Both cards are a little breath of spring, I think!   Something we could all use right now!

Thanks for taking a peek....

You had a successful DeNami day for sure! Perfect sentiment with the mimi. I absolutely love the color combo on the wreath one though... you tied everything together so nicely! Great job with the sketch challenge.

Rosemary, both of these cards are beautiful! Mimi in the Rain is one of my favorites, so I always LOVE seeing her used. But then again....it's fun to see the Leafy Vine Wreath used too, especially since it's so versatile. :)

So glad you were able to join us twice in the first DeNami challenge of the year!
