Bookmark


Its been a long time since I have made a bookmark, but for Renae's birthday present we bought her a book and so I thought a bookmark might be a nice addition to her present. I had to keep reminding myself that it had to be flat - so no 3d embellishments or pop dots (sadly). I used the stamps from CC Designs which I just love to death! I used the colours Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose and So Saffron. I love this SU colour combination. I coloured with inks and aqua painter.

I have been thinking long and hard about my decision to buy some copics...but the thing is I want the whole set! I love watercolouring, but it doesnt go so well on digi images on normal card. I think it would be nice to have the option to use copics or water colouring depending on the card and image. I am seriously considering the purchase...whats money anyway, right?


I would like to enter this bookmark into the following challenges:


PaperPlay Challenges - Stickers (3 love heart stickers)
One Stop Craft Challenge - Things with Wings



I have been busy over the last few days. On Friday I was planning for school. I needed to plan because I go back next week. (I must be working up to going back because last night I dreamed that I resigned!) So I planned for the whole day on Friday...it took me forever...but at least that is the first 2 weeks of term done. On Saturday I did lots of cleaning and jobs around the house and so that leaves all of today to just create.


Also, if you haven't entered my Birthday Candy yet, you should because there is a great chance to win and all you need to do is leave a comment to be in the running! Check it out here.

I hope to be back later today with some more creations. Thanks for visiting!
