Just Add Ink #92

It's Just Add Ink time again and this week we are challenging you to just add a "TAG or BOOKMARK"...
I had been wanting to try one of these elasticated bookmarks for ages and decided this weeks challenge was the perfect time, after watching the Stampin-Up video available to Demonstrators on Stampin Connection, this was what l came up with.............
Do you like my attempt at an artistic, I love the colour combination, inspired by Stampin-Ups awesome "Spice Cake" DSP and it was fun to use felt  for the leaves and add some extra texture.

It's hard to see in the pic's, but the flower and butterfly have both been misted with Champagne shimmer paint, l layered multiple Doily punches on a 2-1/2" circle to form the base for attaching the rest of the elements, l like that it looks like a giant size doily.
The flower was Die cut from the Blossom Party and Daisies #2 Dies, using So Saffron cardstock inked with More Mustard and secured with a Vintage Brad.

The rest of the DT at Just Add Ink have some gorgeous inspiration for you, so pop over and take a peek if you haven't already and hopefully we have inspired you to join in with this weeks challenge and look forward to seeing your entries.

All products are Stampin-Up with the exception of the felt.

"Thanks for stopping by & have a great weekend"
