Hello friends! Today I am sharing my latest project inspired by the newest Lawn Fawn Challenge. The inspiration board has images of rainbows, rain, flowers, and eggs. These images, along with the colors, are all very spring-like!
For this project, I decided to make a bookmark. I had ordered both sets of mini slimline dies from Lawn Fawn some time ago and had thought when I received them that one of the sizes in the Small Mini Slimline Stackables die set would be perfect for making a bookmark. The specific die I used is the one that measures 5 1/8″ x 2 1/8″ (2nd largest).
When I think of spring, the very first thing I think about is flowers and butterflies. I decided to use images from Lawn Fawn’s Butterfly Kisses stamp set for this bookmark because it has a very spring-like feel. Once I was done stamping out the images, I cut them out and colored them using the following Copic markers:
Pink: RV 25, RV 23, RV21
Yellow: Y11, Y13, Y15
Green: YG17, YG03, YG01
Purple: V12, V15
Bunny: W3, W1, W0, W00, R20, R00
I wanted my bunny to sit on some grass and be surrounded by flowers and butterflies. So, I used Lawn Fawn’s Grassy Hillside Borders to cut out the grass from some white cardstock. Then, I placed the same die I used to cut out the bookmark over it, moved it around until I was happy with the height of the hill, and cut it out with my die-cutting machine. Next, I blended Distress Oxide Ink in Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn over the hill to color it green. I stamped the sentiment onto the hill with Versamark Ink, sprinkled white embossing powder over it, and heat set it. Then, I placed Lawn Fawn’s Cloudy Stencil over the bookmark and blended Distress Oxide Ink in Salty Ocean over it to create a sky background.
Once the sky background was dry, I glued the hill onto the bottom of the bookmark. Finally, I arranged all my images over the bookmark and glued them into place. I cut out a hole at the top and finished the bookmark by adding satin ribbon with a bead to it.
Hope my project inspired you to try making a bookmark. They make the perfect gift for an avid reader in your life and are a lot of fun to make!
