Eclectic Ellapu June 2017 Challenge - Design Team

The June challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu is "A Touch of Purple/Pink"; come create with us!

This challenge, plus my Little Free Library being in need of some free bookmarks, me being in need of some crafting time, and having a random package of blank pastel bookmarks in hand made for a winning combination. I am not a big fan of pastel colors (except in hair dye!) and tend to veer away from them in crafting, which explains my burning desire to make these bookmark blanks go away. I wanted a simple project so that I would not sink hours and hours into design and execution; I quickly settled on a combination of subtle watermark background stamping with bolder stamping.


Inks used: Versamark and Versafine in Vintage Sepia, Onyx Black, and Spanish Moss
Stamps used:
text: Papertrey Ink's "All Booked Up" and "Bibliophile" sets
Character Construction's Mad Tea Party set #3
Close to My Heart's Elegant Floral (D1087)
Flonzcraft's Sailship Ocean Addicted
Hampton Art's Cling Birds
Deep Red's Mechanical Heart

{crafted while listening to my 90's dance playlist}
