Hope Butterfly Bookmark

Hi .... it seems that every handful of cards I create these days has a bookmark in it.... I'm sure every week!  This week, my bookmark uses the latest D2D image for the progressive challenge at Designed2Delight Digital Stamps.... the Ribbon Butterfly from the Hope set .... I have also used the floral border we received in the set...


Ingredients: Hot Pink Textured Cardstock; Floral Patterned Paper; Glaze Pens; Stardust Glitter Pens; Pink Chalk Ink; Pale Pink Ribbon in two widths...
I printed the images - I actually layered the butterfly image over the border and printed them together, and printed the butterfly separately again.... I wanted to raise the butterfly with foam tape (really thin tape!) but didn't want to have to try cutting out the antennae.... so I've only raised the wings and body.

I used a variety of glaze, gel and glitter pens to colour - using as much pink as I could.  I edged the white card and floral paper with pink ink, before fixing them together.  The butterfly was then fixed on top, in its rightful place.  I punched a hole to thread the ribbon through, and then created a faux bow with a wider ribbon - it is folded, and cinched with thread tied at the back - as a lingerie bow is created.  For some reason, the ribbon colour hasn't scanned clearly - it's a pale pink, akin to the palest pink shown on the floral paper.... 



As well as entering this into the Designed2Delight progressive challenge, I'm also linking this creation with the Link Up For Pink party.... follow the link badge at the top of my blog to play too!  It's the last day of the Pink Link! Thanks for peepin'!

Great idea to create a bookmark. Your wonderful butterfly looks great with the string of flowers.

What a pretty book mark. I think I would pay more attention to the bookmark than I would reading my book :)
