DeNami Sketch Challenge #9

Good morning and happy Friday readers!  Today I have a card to share with you for the recent DeNami sketch challenge that took a little time but was SO worth it!

First, I have to say that I love. LOVE. DeNami's new ornamental flowers Petit Four set!  I just can't stay away from it!  I've also been loving my Tim Holtz distress inks too!  So, here's what happens when those two things come together:

So first of all, I made the background using Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters, Tumbled Glass and Broken China.  Then, after it was dry I stamped over it with DeNami's ornamental flowers in Versamark and used clear embossing powder to create the textured background!  Then, I used a gel pen to color in the little white dots just for a little more white!
For the second layer, I stamped the flower and leaf in two colors each (kind of rolling the stamp around the edges of the darker color) for a multi colored effect.  I really liked the way it turned out!  Then I distressed the edge with Shabby Shutters.  Finally, I finished the top layer with a scallop punch, some copic coloring, and a little bling!  I also added some white grosgrain ribbon at the bottom and more bling (you can NEVER have enough bling!)

I'm really happy how this one turned out!  It really shows off just how many ways you can use those amazing little DeNami stamps!  =D  Here's the sketch that I was working off of:

So there you have it!  I had so much fun playing along with this sketch! =D
