DeNami Summer Splash Blog Hop

Welcome to the DeNami Design Summer Splash Blog Hop! Today the DeNami Design Team and customers alike are featuring projects that are all about summer.


Hopefully, you've arrived here by way of Jennifer Loftfield's blog, Caffeinated Papercuts. If so, you are on the right track! If not, you'll want to head over to the DeNami blog to start the blog hop at the beginning. (And remember, if you get lost along the way, you can always head over to the DeNami blog to get pointed in the right direction.)

Don't forget, there are some super-fun DeNami prizes to be won! Two lucky commenters will be drawn at random from among the comments left along the blog hop to win a $20 DeNami Design gift certificate! You have until Monday, July 15, 2013, 11:59 pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs to be eligible for a prize. 


Let's get on with my project! What could be a better fit for a "summer splash" theme than a sunglasses-clad chickie floating along in an innertube (quite literally) on a "sunny day?"


There you have it!! I took a one-layer approach to this theme, dressing up my clean and simple design with some ombré waves drawn in with the chisel-tip ends of a few BG Copic markers. I used these DeNami stamps for my creation: B114 Inner Tube Chickie and K50 Sunny Days

It's short and sweet for me today :D. Before you leave, be sure to leave a comment to be eligible for the randomly drawn prizes and then you can be on your way to the next stop on the hop, the blog of Deb Fischer

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Enjoy the blog hop,

Emily

Oh Emily! I love your floating cool chick! The waves are awesome and I like how you made them to follow the curve of the image.
You are always so creative and come up with such fun ideas.
Hope you are enjoying your summer. The heat has been terrible here but it usually doesn't last too long. I have been keeping company with my little buddy Mr A/C these last few weeks though. lol
