DeNami Color Challenge

DeNami Designs has posted their first color challenge. This was a fun challenge and several great designs were submitted. I hope you enjoy my first ever published pieces.

For the first card, I was fortunate to find this lime citrus paper from Stampington & Co in the current issue of Take Ten.

Stamp the butterfly border stamp with Versafine Vintage Sepia on lime green papered paper. Color the butterflies with a Tombow magenta marker and top with a pink gelly roll glitter pen. Color the flowers with a green gelly roll glitter pen. Add clear Stickles to the dots in the border. Adhere magenta rick rack across the top. Add a strip of A Muse shimmer brown paper decorated with a Fiskars paper trimmer. This is my favorite of the three cards I designed with this color scheme.

For the floral card, top a kraft card with a white layer and then a magenta shimmer vellum layer. The magenta layer is trimmed with a Fiskars paper trimmer and has a white sheer ribbon run between the slots and tied into a bow.

Stamp the flower trio with Versafine Vintage Sepia on a lime layer and adher to a white layer. Color with magenta and lime Tombow markers. Add A Muse brown pearls in the center of the flowers. Add lime dew drops to the side of the flower panel.

Stamp the birdhouse trio on white cardstock with Versafine Vintage Sepia and roughly cut. Color the birdhouses with brown tone Tombow markers. Color the hearts and grass with gelly roll glitter magenta and green markers. Add A Muse brown pearls to the birdhouses. Stamp the birdhouses again on a textured magenta paper. Cut the hearts of the birdhouses and glue to the white layer.

Adhered the piece to a layer of magenta textured paper which had the corners punched with a corner rounder. Add a strip of shimmer brown card stock that has two corners punched with the corner rounder is adhered to one side. Adhere the entire piece to a lime green card. Tie white sheer ribbon across the top and tie into a bow.

Great colors; great choice Nami. Thanks for the challenge.
