A DeNami Happy Mother's Day

Good morning and happy Monday! Here's a little something bright and cheery to wake you up and get you going today:


I'm sharing this Mother's Day card that I made with some fabulous DeNami Design products for the brand-new DeNami monthly challenge. This month we are challenging folks to use this cool sketch by sweet and talented DT member Lisa Petrella:


I know, I can be such a literal Lucy when it comes to sketches! Sometimes I can tweak them and make them my own, but this one? Forget about it! But when you're working with a downright cool-looking sketch, I think it's fun just to see it come to life in color exactly the way it is!!

Curious about the DeNami goodies I used in the making of this project? My butterfly focal point (colored with colored pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits) comes from the Fancy Flutters cling set. I also used the Teeny Heart Background and the Happy Mother's Day cling sentiment. In the DeNami cardstock department, I used some gorgeous Amethyst (have you seen the fabulous texture on this richly colored cardstock? Amazing!), cheerful Magenta, and peaceful Sky Blue.  And I used my go-to Onyx Black Versafine ink for the sentiment. Even that fun baker's twine can be purchased in the DeNami Design store! The magenta, emerald, and purple twines from the Confetti 3-pk, and the sky blue twine comes from the Pastel 3-pk.

This month's DeNami challenge runs through Monday, May 28. All you need to do is use at least one DeNami stamp and incorporate this sketch! And then be sure to link it up over on the DeNami blog. I can't wait to see what you create :) . Please plan to play along!

Thanks for stopping by!
