Denami Challenge: One Layer Card
This one's just for fun! I have absolutely no (well, maybe one) DeNami sentiment stamp, so I saw on their blog someone had hand-written a sentiment. So I decided to have some fun. What did the first swan say to the other? "Hey, I used to think you were a duck!" Corny, I know, but fun. The rest of the inside greeting says,
"I hope you have a happy, fun-filled birthday!". Who wouldn't want to get this card? I think sometimes as cardmakers we focus on the pretty outside scene, when people would really like a little smile or grin. Now, the front of my one-layer card was very pretty before I added my choppy little writing. I drew some clouds to use as a mask and sponged around them with Broken China Distress Ink. The actual card is glossy, so the dye ink really pops. I gold embossed the swans and then masked them to sponge the sky and water. (Yes, that is water below the swans--their lake is rather greenish!) I then did get a set of cling DeNami stamps recently with a few little butterflies. The only thing is, there was a flower amidst the butterflies, so I promptly cut that part of the stamp off so I could make bunches of butterflies. These are stamped in black and colored with Tombow watercolor markers. So what else could one swan say to the other? "W-a-a-a-y down upon the Swanee River....!"
