Lavender and Lace

Hope you had a great week and are headed for even a better weekend.
I LOVE weekends. There's a lot to do, I know, but it feels like the choice of what you want to do is up to you, and I am always looking for some craft time. I have three day weekends and that is awesome...but it never feels like enough!!! There is so much I want to, I couldn't fit it all in no matter how much time I had. I'm sure most of you think that too.

Well anyway, I am still working on my 15 bookmarks. And still having fun. I'm the kind of a crafter that cannot make anything the same twice. Even though the backs have the same Bible passage, the fronts are all different. This time I used a flower stencil that I bought years ago and had never used, even though I really liked it. So, I traced it onto the front of my tag and colored it in with my Prismacolor alcohol ink markers. Then I covered it with Glossy Accents. That made the image just beautiful. Glossy, deep and rich in color. I loved it!!

The background was a paper with some pink, white and gray on it. It was a download, a long time ago, from Heidi Swapp. I added a pretty lavender color to the edges, lavender lace on the bottom and very light lavender gems to the flower.

I am pleased with the outcome. Hope all the gems stay in place if the bookmark is used a lot.

I am entering this tag into the Lose the weight (CAS style) a new package of lace & matching bling Out with the old, In with the new. The lace & matching bling is brand new.

That will do it for me.
Lots of  love and hugs...
