I love the challenge this week at IDIC challenge blog. Make a bookmark. I wanted to do some thing that I haven't done before....kinda step out of my comfort zone. So, I have 2 bookmarks to offer. Both are made from the single rose digital stamp from Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps.
For the first one, a ribbon book mark. I cut a 12" length of ribbon for the purple and a 13" length of sheer ribbon in light pink. I printed out my rose in a wallet size on pink cs and shimmer cs. I fussy cut my rose from the pink and then colored it with copics (RV21 and RV23). I cut the stem (using fussy cut also) out of green shimmer. I used a large scallop punch and cut 2 out of purple cs. I used a medium circle punch and cut 1 out of the same pink cs I printed the rose on.
I mounted the rose using glue dots, also mounted the pink onto the purple using glue dots. Then I mounted the stem using glossy accents.
I attached the ribbon to the back of the purple cs scallop circle (the one that had the rose mounted on it)and used a glue dot on both sides of the ribbon. I sandwiched the 2 purple scallops together with the ribbon in the middle. Then I threaded the sheer ribbon thru the 2 purple beads. I used Ranger's Glossy Accents to make the end of the ribbon stiff to aid me in the threading...lol...
I fussy cut all the rose blooms from the pink and purple, and all the stems from the green. Then I used Spring Violet glimmer mist and sprayed all the blooms, both pink and purple. This made the purple ones darker and the pink ones a light purple. I mod podged them onto the 12"x3" cs. I put the dark purple down first, and then the light purple, being sure to alternate and let some hang off the edges. I put a coat of mod podge on top and then put a rose and stem I pieced together on top of the other roses. I did this twice. One on top one on the bottom.
I mod podged it all again. I used Glossy Mod Podge for this as I wanted it to stay shiny. After it dried, I stamped with a single rose all over the bookmark to give it depth.
And here it is:
As my chicks grow...
And as I find more time to get creative, I thought I would share some of my creations, as well as my time with others. Hopefully I will make new friendships and create lasting bonds over paper, adhesive, and embellishments. So sit back, relax, and let's share...have a cup of coffee, or tea, or in my case a Coke...lol... and let's just have a blast creating, finding new projects to make together, and gathering our supplies for future endeavors!
