Before I show you my bookmarks i just had to share the news that I won the public vote over at Quirky Crafts thanks to a few friends who voted for my pirate dragon card and now I get the chance to be a guest designer!! Not sure when yet but it's still exciting!!
Ok, now that I've tooted my own horn :) back to my bookmarks!! After making the first one (which is a couple of posts below), I decided to make a girly one for me. I thought lil Fashionette 60's Willow from TPS was perfect for what I wanted to create!! I decided I wanted to do a black and white theme with one other colour and I chose red. So I chose my DP first then went from there!! I coloured Willow in with Tria Markers; Copics and H20's. When I put it all together I added the flowers, ribbon and rhinestones and I thought I maybe needed something else but I keep trying to add something to it but nothing seems to look right so I've decided it looks fine!! Forgot to mention that I can't sew that is why the sewing isn't straight. I don't even own a sewing machine, I have used a little handle held sewing machine that is very hard to control. Well that is my excuse...LOL!!!
What do you think?
So I have decided to enter this into the following challenges
* Creative Inspirations Paint - Flowers
* Sugar Creek Hollow - Sensational Stitching
* Crafty Creations - In Stitches
* A Spoonfull of Sugar - Ribbon, Pearls/Rhinestones and Flowers
This is my second bookmark!!!! My oldest son, Liam loved my first bookmark so much that he decided he wanted one. So I asked him to pick a stamp and tell me what colours he wanted it coloured. I coloured this fab image of Lil Lad Stefan in with Tria's and copics. Still learning to colour and as you can see (in both images the colour has bled a bit - I think due to that fact that I'm not using the paper I'm supposed to). Then last night I asked Liam to pick the papers he wanted and once the boys were in bed I put the bookmark all together!! My brother drew this combi van a couple of years ago and I thought it would go perfect with Lil Lad Stefan. I have put crystal effects over all the windows to give it a glass like look and did the same with Stefan's sunglasses. The brads I added are from kaisercraft which I have had for about 2 years but never used them!!! I added some ribbon too but you can't really see the blue ribbon!!
Liam woke up this morning and saw his bookmark and just loved it! He even took it to school for show and tell!!
I have entered this into the following challenges
* Tickled Pink Stamps - One for the Lads
* The Sisterhood of Crafters - Let's hear it for the Boys
* Crafts and Me - Anything Goes
* A Gem of a Challenge - Anything but Square
Well I am off to make annother bookmark for my younger son!! :)
Until Next Time... Enjoy!! xx
