Happy Wishes!

Hello everyone!

Coralynn here and I'm back with something a bit different.  A bookmark!  Just because the Otter from Lawn Fawn is just too adorable and I just had to use the new bookmark die from Avery Elle.

I cut out the bookmark twice from 110# card stock and glued them together for stability.  Then I used the Lawn Fawn Year 5 stamp and die set for the otter and Gleeful Garden stamp and die set for the little flower he's holding.

I used my copics to colour in the otter and for the little flower.  I used distress ink for the clouds and applied it with an ink blending tool.  I cut the clouds out of acetate from the "Shy's the limit" dies and kept it for a stencil and it works great for this technique.

For the waves, I used the Lawn Fawn scalloped borders dies and used the negative part for the waves and the patterned paper is from the Yours Truly 6x6 paper pack.  Then I used the bookmark die to cut out the waves so they fit the card stock and bring it all together.  I used Versafine Onyx black to stamp out the sentiment and it's from an oldie but a goodie Lunar Lights set from Lawn Fawn.  Then I used some enamel dots and embroidery floss to finish it up.

Don't forget to stop by the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop and check out all the goodies Vanessa has.  If you're looking for the new Distress Inks, there are still some left so go over and grab them while you can!

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!
