DeNami Color Challenge #8

Hi there, blog friends! It's time for a brand new challenge at DeNami Design!!! This time around it's a COLOR challenge! Check out this BEAUTIFUL combo:


Here's my take:


The aspen leaves in the mountains are absolutely GORGEOUS right now---AMAZING shades of gold and orange (and still a few hints of green here and there), so I couldn't resist using a tree image on my card for today! The Round Leafy Tree is one of my very favorite DeNami Design images! It's so whimsical and perfect for ANY season! I stamped the tree in Rich Cocoa Memento ink and outlined the trunk and branches with an E31 Copic Sketch Marker! Then, I colored the leaves with green and gold Copic Sketch Markers and outlined each one with a Clear Spica Glitter Pen. (The sparkle didn't show up very well in the photo, but it's really pretty in person.)


Here are a couple of photos I took during a walk around our neighborhood last weekend. Sometimes the snow arrives in the mountains before we have actually had a chance to enjoy the colors of the season, so it's really exciting to have some time to appreciate Autumn this year! What a beautiful world we live in!



I hope you'll join us for our Color Challenge this month! Can't wait to see what you create! And...be sure to check out the DeNami Design Blog for all of the challenge details and to see the FABULOUS projects my fellow DT gals and our Guest Designer have created!

Thanks for stopping by!
