On to this week's Color Dare! This one is a great color combo--we are to use the secondary colors of orange, green, and purple in any shades we choose. I chose Sunset, Sweet Leaf, Topiary, and Petal, along with the neutrals Colonial White and Chocolate.
This is seriously another case of hand-hitting-forehead inspiration because it came to me as I was designing card layouts for my next workshop. I quit the cards and went right to work. You see, while I was cutting, I ended up with a leftover strip from the Victory Paper Pack that I took one look at and just HAD to make it into a bookmark. This one will be for my niece's baptism birthday this Saturday, so the timing was phenomenal, and definitely from above! In fact, most of the pieces I used were in my leftover drawer with cuts that I had not used on other projects--the only ones I did especially for this one were the Petal colored flowers. Reheated leftovers--yummo! ;)
Here is the original version:
Now here is the Glitzy version!
I realized while threading the ribbon that the paper would be better with a little more thickness here where it ties in. I easily reinforced it by making two flower cuts with the AP Cart on our cardstock, punching a hole through the center, and adhering one to each side of the bookmark. Walla!
