Flourishes Noontime Challenges...

Hey there!!   This week is release week at Flourishes and to go along with the sneak peeks they are having some noontime challenges.   I was able to get something made for the Wednesday noontime challenge to use lace, as well as the Thursday noontime challenge to make a bookmark.  



For the Lovely in Lace challenge, I went super simple, using some patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye Sunshine 6x6 pad and an the tiger lily image from A Year of Flowers 2 set.   I stamped the image using Tuxedo Black ink and then colored it with Copic markers using the Sunflower collection (Y21, Y23, Y35 & Y38).  The image was die cut using a Spellbinders plain circle die.  The scalloped mat was cut from some Sunshine paper using a Spellbinders Large Scallop circle die.   A strip of lace was added and the image adhered over that.  I finished off the inside of the card by adding strips of Sunshine papers, a bit of lace and stamping the sentiment from the Botanical Bookplate 1 set.



For the Book Worm Challenge, I made a bookmark using a PaperTrey Ink Half & Half die.  I diecut the patterned paper using the die and then to create the mat I placed the die on my cardstock, traced around it and then trimmed it out.  The image is the snowdrop image from Botantical Bookplates 1.   The image was stamped using Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics and then die cut using the matching Botanical Bookplates die.  A mat was created by adhering the die cut image to cardstock and then trimming around it.  I added a little mini binder clip with a bit of black twine tied in a bow.  

Thanks for stopping by....
