I am still up to my ears in bookmarks/tags and loving every moment. I'll bet by the time I'm done though, I'll be making anything BUT tags.
Right now though, it's really fun and I'm enjoying the different techniques and ideas that are rolling around in my head. There's still quite a few ideas that I want to do...so let's keep on going!!!
I like this particular bookmark because it turned out to be sort of vintage looking. The little light taupe rose and the bling flourish came from Prima and I found it in a scrapbook store. It was the only flourish with a flower, so I grabbed it as soon as I saw it. Hope I can find some more of these. They look so special with that little flower on them.
Most of the backgrounds for these bookmarks are cut from 8" designer paper packs. I love these packs. They seem to have better designs for cards, tags or small albums. I am one of those paper freaks that just can't walk away from a store without buying some paper. Beautiful paper just gets my artsy juices flowing and wanting to go home and DO something!!!!!
So here's my tag...hope you like it as well as I do. It just makes me think of setting this bookmark in-between pages of a wonderful book being read to enjoy a quiet time and a beautiful story. Actually, mine would sit in a Beth Moore Bible Study book and I would be loving every moment I spent being with and talking to Jesus! What a great thought!!!
This tag background is Authentique paper pack.
The birdcage is stamped with VersaMark and embossed in gold.
The little bird is a punch from Stampin' Up that I bought ages ago and wouldn't give it up for anything. I use it often. I understand they still sell it.
The little light taupe flower, crochet leaves and bling is from Prima and a new purchase.
The back of the tag is a printable from Pintarest and it is a copy of the 2Corinthians love chapter.
I am entering this into the http://flourishes.org/category/timeless-tuesday/Challenge. They want a celebration of something new: The love chapter is my focus for 2014.
It also fits into the http://divasbydesignchallenge.blogspot.ca/...which is anything goes. This is my first time in this challenge. I just found it. Glad I did!
