Crafts: Act 1, Scene 5: DeNami Design Color Challenge #4

Yet another fun and fabulous challenge from my favorite stamp company, DeNami Design. It's time again for a color challenge, meaning that you create a card using a given color template. Design Team member Michele picked gorgeous colors! I couldn't wait to start creating! The result: What a Pear! I was really inspired by the Harlequin Border stamp. This is one of my newest favorites! I'm totally attracted to anything that has a pattern like plaid, stripes, argyle, etc. (OCD alert, eh?), and this stamp is just awesome! You can use it as a border, or stamp it multiple times to create an awesome Design Paper (DP) background. I also had the idea to use the Contempo Frame stamp as a transition from black and white to pink. Lastly, who can resist a shiny, juicy pear? I colored the fabulous pear stamp with Copic markers, and then I topped them off with gorgeous Ice Stickles. I thought this card would be perfect for a friendship card or even an anniversary, wedding or engagement! See below for a list of supplies, and if you have any questions about techniques or products used, please send me an email or leave a comment! Thanks! Amy SUPPLIES: Stamps: Small Pear, Harlequin Border, Contempo Frame (all by DeNami Design) Paper: Pearl papers by Darice, scrap papers by DCWV Ink: Tuxedo Black by Memento, Primrose by Ancient Page Embellishments: Black Embossing Powder, Rhinestones, Ice Stickles (Lime Ice) Other: Copic Markers, Spica Glitter Markers, Stardust Gel Glitter Pen
