create without limits -Bookmark

Hello!
Here today sharing a bookmark I made with the fun Quietfire Design calligraphy stamp create without limits.
 
For the top panel, I started with a scrap of watercolour paper that was torn out of my Art Journal.
-Daubed a bit of pink and lt blue here and there on the dry w/c paper and roughed up the one edge that was torn from the Journal to give it more texture.
-Next I used a Memory Box die to cut craft foam for an outline stamp as well as various colours of card stock for building the flowers and pot (set aside). 
-After lightly wetting the w/c paper I used the craft foam outline stamp with dk blue ink  to make a shadow, let dry completely.
-Next I glued the lt brown CS outline over the inked shadow I coloured the flowers, leaves and pot with markers before adding the leaves and flowers in green CS followed by the flowers only in yellow CS.
Note: With the multiple layers offset slightly it gives it a nice 3d effect.
-Completed panel by stamping sentiment in same dk blue as the shadow. 
Then adhered panel to coordinating  patterned paper then to card stock. Since I had an plastic sleeve on hand I used it but it would look just fine without too.

Entered this into the Die Cut Divas March Challenge.

The sun is finally high enough that we can enjoy it in our sun room, 
hard to get up from a lunch break in here. ;)

aunt and godmother who left us last week. 
She will be greatly missed and lovingly remembered. 


Thanks for stopping by today!

To Create is to touch the spirit Card for March CCC


Hello, 
I hope you have been enjoying a sunny week too. Out at the lake house last weekend we had a half dozen crocuses peeking out between the bits of remaining snow. :)

Today I'd like to share  a card I made for the March Card Chain Challenge at SOS it is on it's way to Australia. A bit funny because the card I'm to receive will be coming from Australia. 

This time I managed only 3 of the criteria as I just couldn't find a way to add lilac onto my card.

Here is a link to the March Card Chain Challenge info. and to see some great cards for last months exchange check February card chain challenge reveal


The wonderful quote stamp is from Quietfire Design
