Hello and welcome!
It's time for a new theme at Allsorts challenge and we are back to our regular (weekly) schedule now. It's Dena's turn to host and she chose the optional theme of "School Days". I don't make "back to school" cards anymore but thought a new bookmark would be wonderful and useful too so I made this double sided bookmark for my daughter. She can use it in her Honors American Studies class which also involves reading and book discussions.
This is one side using Lavinia's Creeping Vine stamp along with Grace (small size) and Spiral of Spells. I created a bit of a scene with homemade masks out of copy paper and used this Penny Black stencil too. The beautiful crinkle ribbon in dark gray/black was part of a prize I won from DLArt challenge. You can this ribbon in Diana's shop here.
I have another (not quite finished) bookmark to share. This was my first try and I didn't like how it turned out after I stamped the ivy all around the edges. I felt like it took away from the beautiful fairy so I had started over.
I used the same Lavinia products as I did on the first image but slightly different colors.
Would you believe now that it's a few days later I actually like this version a little bit more!!! Guess I'll turn this into a bookmark for myself now :)
And that's all for today. Hope you'll stop by the challenge blog too to see what the rest of the team made and of course to play along with us! We have a pretty Sizzix die to give away this week!
