DeNami Pin-spired ~ Get Well Soon!

 

Hi there! Today I have a card for the DeNami Pin-spired feature. Emily, Tammy, Pattie and myself have each created a project based on this inspiration photo that Paulina found for us on Pinterest. I have to admit that this one really stumped me. I studied it everyday waiting for a light bulb to go off. But things just weren't sparking in the old noodle! So one evening I thought I would just make a card based on the colors. I pulled out several markers and just made swipes on my scratch paper to find the shades I wanted to use. When I had gone through all of them I looked at the paper and there it was staring me right in the face! So here is my light bulb moment!!




I picked the marker (Tombow) colors I wanted to use, made the swipes on the white panel then topped it off with my fussy cut elegant word plate filled with a sentiment. I used kraft cardstock here, and as my card base, to echo the craft sticks. I sprinkled on a few rhinestones (of course!) to pick up the shine from the bottle in the photo. It took days and days to come up with something and mere minutes to execute it!!

I hope you'll take some time to stop by for a visit with Emily, Tammy and Pattie. They have some fabulous cards to share with you. Thanks taking a peek today ~Lisa
