WMSC #36 & DeNami Color Challenge #6


Morning, friends!  I have a sweet and simple card to share today that just puts a smile on my face.  I hope it does yours, too!  I haven't played along with the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge for a while, so I managed to squeeze it in this week along with the DeNami Color Challenge, both of which end today.  I had the good fortune recently of winning some stamps from DeNami.  I hadn't tried out their stamps yet, but they are excellent quality rubber stamps with some very cute designs.  I thought this darling little turtle would be perfect for their current color challenge.


I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the turtle three times on the white panel and colored them in with my Prismacolor pencils.  I don't have anything very close to the lime color specified by the challenge, so I substituted PTI's Simply Chartreuse, which I think looks fabulous with Enchanted Evening.  The EE card base is stamped in Versamark with A Little Argyle.  The sentiment is also from DeNami, and I heat embossed it in white.  Some Chartreuse ribbon tied with a white button adds the finishing touch.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Enchanted Evening, white)
Stamps:  DeNami Design (Mini Turtle, Hello Friend), Papertrey Ink (A Little Argyle)
Ink:  Inkadinkadoo (Black), Clearsnap (Frost White), Versamark
Tools:  We R Memory Keepers (Corner Chomper)
Accessories:  Papertrey Ink (ribbon, button), Stampendous (embossing powder) DMC floss
Coloring medium:  Prismacolor Premier pencils, OMS

Don't they look cute all lined up like that?  

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you have a great day!
