Hibiscus hello


'Morning all. 

I'm popping in here today with a product spotlight from Denami


I really like the bold outline of this hibiscus and thought it looked great when embossed in white on vellum. And it's super-easy to cut out too!
 Because the outline is so thick, it's very forgiving...*ahem* don't ask how I know that though...*smile*
It also looks good when layered multiple times, but I'll save that card for another day! 

I paired it with the Aloha sentiment and made it sort of "back tie."
 I was going for classy, but this hibiscus stamp is too fun for that! 
Stamped on that lush charcoal CS with versamark ink wasn't enough...it needed a punch of color and the bright peach CS just brought it out, don't you think?

This large bold hibiscus stamp is on sale this week, so get it while you can! 
It would look great on a Hawaiian shirt card for a guy!

And be sure to check out what the rest of the DT has in store for you on the Denami blog too, some really great eye-candy for sure. 

Thanks for stopping by,
Have a good one!
*mwah*

Love that you did this in black and white. I always think bright colours when I see that image so your card really jumped out at me because the image rocks in black and white too!
