DeNami Product Spotlight: Sweetheart Mimi

It's time for another Product Spotlight at DeNami Design!! Today we're featuring the newly released Sweetheart Mimi!!! I have always LOVED Mimi---she's so chic and stylish! Plus, she's lots of fun to color and/or paper piece! 


I stamped Sweetheart Mimi onto an oval that I cut with my Petite Ovals Nestabilities (Spellbinders). After coloring Mimi with my Copic Sketch Markers, I flipped the Nestabilities oval upside down (so the smooth side was facing up), placed it on top of the die cut and used it as a mask. I then applied Rose Bud Memento ink with a sponge around the inside edges. I've seen lots of people use this technique in blogland, but had never tried it. I'm really happy with the results. Here's a closer look at Mimi:


This was also the first time I've ever used a doily on a card! I found these heart-shaped doilies at Michaels and thought they were a perfect combo with my new Martha Stewart Lace Heart Edge Punch!

The sponging around the oval is SO pretty. Love all of the texture you added with the punches, buttons, twine, and that gorgeous doily. A heart doily at Michaels? I guess I know where I'm going after the gym today! Thanks for the inspiration.
