DeNami Blog Hop


Last DeNami Blog Hop until the Fall & with Bright Blossoms the theme I had to participate!  My first thought was to use my old favorite daisy blossoms, but then I saw the daisy flower & grass stamps in my collection.  I don't think I've made a card with either of them so decided it was time to ink them up.  Both images were white embossed & then colored over with Copic markers G02, R35, R22 with the ink going slightly past the embossing.  I really like the effect you get of texture. I had also never used the coral pen--a really beautiful color, I think.  The sentiment is also DeNami. I used the pens to color the ribbon & pearls & added Stickles to the blossom & leaves.  
The dies are Lil' Inkers stitched rectangles.  All the hop details are on the DeNami Blog including prize info. You should have arrived from Donna's wonderful blog & next is super talented DT member Wendy.  

My blogging friend, Darnell, is celebrating 500 followers with the NBUS challenge, so I'm linking up there.  Enjoy the hop!

  22. Gorgeous card! I like how you colored over the embossing. That gives a really neat effect! This stamp is probably one of my MOST used florals. Hee hee! I'm enjoying seeing what people have that they haven't used before. This is a fun challenge. An extra "hi" to you too! I know I haven't been by to visit in FOREVER.
