create without limits -Bookmark

Here today sharing a bookmark I made with the fun Quietfire Design calligraphy stamp create without limits.
For the top panel, I started with a scrap of watercolour paper that was torn out of my Art Journal.
-Daubed a bit of pink and lt blue here and there on the dry w/c paper and roughed up the one edge that was torn from the Journal to give it more texture.
-Next I used a Memory Box die to cut craft foam for an outline stamp as well as various colours of card stock for building the flowers and pot (set aside). 
-After lightly wetting the w/c paper I used the craft foam outline stamp with dk blue ink  to make a shadow, let dry completely.
-Next I glued the lt brown CS outline over the inked shadow I coloured the flowers, leaves and pot with markers before adding the leaves and flowers in green CS followed by the flowers only in yellow CS.
Note: With the multiple layers offset slightly it gives it a nice 3d effect.
-Completed panel by stamping sentiment in same dk blue as the shadow. 
Then adhered panel to coordinating  patterned paper then to card stock. Since I had an plastic sleeve on hand I used it but it would look just fine without too.

Entered this into the Die Cut Divas March Challenge.

The sun is finally high enough that we can enjoy it in our sun room, 
hard to get up from a lunch break in here. ;)

Reflections, a photo from our files that I dedicate to my
aunt and godmother who left us last week. 
She will be greatly missed and lovingly remembered. 

Thanks for stopping by today!


  1. Gorgeous tag. And I love the sun room and duck in the water. We had only 1/4 inch of rain today, some brilliant sun and it's going to warm up a lot over the weekend.

    So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas.

  2. Totally beautiful tag. So artistic. Love the colors. Thank you so much for entering the Die Cut Divas Challenge.
