Feelin' Blue on The DeNami Design Blog Hop




It's that time again!
Welcome to the.... 
DeNami 'Monochromatic' Blog Hop
and I am super happy to be participating once again.

If you came here from Ruby's blog
then you are on the right path.
If not, you may want to start from the beginning
of the hop at DeNami Design Blog
so you don't miss a thing!

Here's what's in store for you along the way....

a wonderful opportunity to be inspired by creative
designers all over the world who love to use
DeNami Design stamps in their projects

a chance to win a mini-shopping spree
on the DeNami Design Website
 and the way to do that, is to make sure you
visit each designer on the hop
and leave a comment!
 
You will have until 11:59pm PST
Monday, April 11th
to visit all the blogs and leave
your comments.


I love working with the idea of monochromatic colors.
I think the hardest part is....
choosing a color!
I love playing with DeNami stamps.  The abstract design
behind the focal image above creates so many possibilities.
I am also breaking out my brand new deep edge punch
from Martha Stewart, which really added a nice border.


I hope you enjoyed your visit to
The Open Window
Next stop on the hop,
Lori Gunderson

I chose blue for my DeNami card, too! And you're right...choosing a color was the hardest part. I like your trail of bling bubbling away from the DeNami image. Very pretty.
