Sorry...that's a lame title, but it's getting late and my husband is on a plane to Dublin right now, so I'm getting a little punchy. Thankfully he's only gone for about 60 hours (crazy to fly him from California to Ireland for a 2 hour meeting I know!!) so I'll only be mostly insane by the time he gets home.2 weeks ago Christi challenged us all to make bookmarks. That is something I almost never make, but always need since I do love to read!! I wanted to use this SU! paper, and I thought the Simply Special stamp set would be perfect!
Normally when I use that set, I always complain about how hard it is to color well, never knowing how to color that watering can. For some reason, it has always stumped me. Well...today I have conquered the watering can, because I am very happy with the coloring on this one. Maybe it was just by sticking with a color and not going grey has I have in the past...but I really like it!I started with a piece of 2" by 8" piece of cardstock and scored it at 2". I then cut 2 pieces of dsp, one 1 7/8" by 5 7/8" and another 1 7/8" square. I added some Basic Gray magnetic snaps, then adhered the dsp over them (so they stay hidden!) Then, I stamped my image, cut it and it's layer with my nesties, and watercolored away. Now to go stick it in my book!!!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!!
