Play Date Cafe #73 - DeNami

 

DeNami is the sponsor this week at The Play Date Cafe.  
The winner will receive a $20 Gift Certificate to DeNami! 

I thoroughly enjoyed the DeNami Floral Frenzy Blog Hop a few days ago. I absolutely loved the card that Dana made, you can see it on her blog here.   When I looked at the colors for the Play Date Cafe Challenge, I just kept thinking about Dana's card.  I thought her color blocking technique with the white embossed floral image would be perfect.   I used the DeNami Cherry Blossom Stamp  and added some pretty rhinestones in the center of the flowers.  I also used a copic marker to highlight the inside of the leaves/flowers.  It doesn't show up in the picture, but it helped to give the image some dimension.  I thought these were pretty tough colors to use, so I'm excited to see how easy you all make it look!!
Supplies:
Stamps: Cherry Blossom
Cardstock: PTI Summer Sunrise, SU Perfect Plum, Bazzill Red Something, White.
Ink: Versamark with White embossing Powder
Misc: PTI ribbon, DeNami White Grosgrain 5/8 Ribbon, Rhinestones, Edge Distresser, Heat Gun.
