EBTKS Challenge #16





Happy Memorial Day weekend my friends. Thanks so much for stopping by today!



Everything But The Kitchen Sink is hosting a new challenge on their blog today sponsored by DeNami Design. And the challenge is....... Nail Polish! All you need to do is use nail polish in a creative way in your design. This was tough one for me but I was up for the challenge. I decided that I wanted to use my favorite pink nail polish and grabbed two of my favorite flowers from my DeNami Design collection. Can you guess which ones? You got it... the Small Daisy Blossom and Large Daisy Blossom. I filled a bowl with water and then added a few drops of the nail polish. I took white cardstock and laid it on top of the water for a few seconds. Then I pulled the cardstock through the water and to my amazement a funky background image was created. It was so much fun. I felt like I was in art class again. :)

After letting the cardstock dry I colored my daisies with Copic markers and used pop dots to add some dimension. I decided to use the "Happy Birthday" sentiment from the All Occasion Sentiments stamp set from DeNami. This is definitely one of my "go to" sets. It is so versitile! I got out a pair of mini scallop scissors from Fiskars that I haven't used for a long time and used it as a border on my sentiment tag for just a little something extra. I thought my card could use a little extra bling so I added some of my favorite rhinestones from Recollections. After adding a black strip of cardstock with a little white stitching rub on I added some of DeNami's Sheer Black/White Dots Ribbon for a little bit of sas! Hope you like it. :)

Don't forget to hop on over to the EBTKS blog today and join some of the other DeNami DT members for some fun!

Have a blessed Memorial Day!
