An Elegant Event ... The Twinery & DeNami Design


After a L.O.N.G. week away from blogging, I am happy
to be back as part of a terrific event with one of my
favorite companies on earth!

The Twinery is happy to be participating in a blog hop
with the talented designers of DeNami Design.


If you've reached my blog from the
you are in the perfect spot to continue on.

If not, it's only two stops back to the beginning at
and you'll want to make sure to visit each designer on the hop.
All the details are below.


I loved playing with this beautiful Large Butterfly design from DeNami.
The lovely brush art design makes it so versatile.
There are so many possibilities with this image.
I decided to do an illusion-style card.
The inner image was colored with a Copic followed by
layers of baker's twine in Honeydew and Cantaloupe.
From there, I layered it on top of the base card also stamped
with the same image and added the sentiment.
 

You know there are fabulous prizes whenever The Twinery
are part of an event . . . combine that with what DeNami Designs
are offering and you have yourself a
GRAND GIVEAWAY ! ! !
