A Book Mark for Color Throwdown #166

When I saw an elasticised bookmark in the Impressions Magazine, I was keen to give it a try. The video on Stampin' Connection was very helpful and Nikki's beautiful example for the latest Just Add Ink Challenge was more than enough inspiration to get me into my craft room today to try one of my own.

Color Throwdown #166

I decided to use the colours from the Color Throwdown #166 and discovered some Green Tea DSP in my stash that I had completely forgotten about that matched the colour combo perfectly.

I used SU's ribbons, button, Itty Bitty Punch, Pearls, DSP and the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die. The Bird Cage Die is from Marianne Creatables.

Now, all I need to do is cover that journal!

Bron, I absolutely love the die cut bird cage with that gorgeous DSP behind it. Such a cute project; you've done a beautiful job with this xx

Absolutely LOVE the elastic bookmark with the journal! My SU demo told me yesterday we'd be making these at our next stamp club...can't wait! Love your use of the birdcage as the focal point! Thanks for playing along with us at Color Throwdown!

Super cute. I think I need to make one of these book marks now. It's easy to see how it actually works in your pic. Best I check out the tute.

Loving the bird cage too - only 'coz no birds in it lol.
