DeNami Fabulous Frames Blog Hop

Hi Blog Hoppers!
Welcome to Dreaming and Creating!  Today is the DeNami Fabulous Frames Blog Hop. The Hop begins today at 6 AM PST.  You will have until June 13 to leave comments on all the blogs.   The reason for the blog: to give lots of great ideas for using DeNami Design products.  And, are there prizes??  You bet there  are!  Three $20 gift certificates will be given away.  One to a Hop  participant and two to those who leave comments.   Each participant in the Hop has made a project featuring at least one DeNami product and Frames.  Click over to the DeNami Blog if you want to start at the beginning.


You should have arrived here from Michele's Blog.  And, didn't she have something super sweet for you?!!


And, on with the show!  Here is my project which is called  "City Chic".  I used the stamp City Girls.  I was going for a chic, urban, industrial kind of look.  So, saying that, I used some grays and muted tones.  





I stamped the image with Black dye ink on a piece of cream DP from K & Company.  I used multiple techniques to color the image.  The buildings were  watercolored with black ink.  I used markers (Stampin' Up and Memento) to color the hair and purses.  The suits were colored with watercolor crayons.  



 For my FRAME  I die cut with a  Sizzix die  from SEI DP.   The Chic stamp is from Inkadinkado and is stamped in black ink.
I layered with medium green textured from DCWV, glossy black, and gray CS from Stampin' Up.  For accents I added some silver and black jewel stickers.  

Now keep on hopping.  Your next stop on the Hop is Beverly's blog.  

Don't forget to leave a comment to be eligible for the drawing.  I hope you have enjoyed your visit here today.   Have fun on the Hop! 
Karen
