Posh Bookmark

Morning Peeps,

It's my turn to post on the Simpy Sassy Inspiration Blog, and if you haven't visited for a while, what are you waiting for, hop on over, the design team have been working relentlessly to bring you inspiration for all your Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy Stamps, so grab a coffee and hop on over HERE and have a browse.

Right, onto today's inspiration and I chose to make a Posh Bookmark.  I have used "Romantic Dreamer" which comes as a set of two, along with "Lost in Thought".  If you didn't know already Krista drew these characters based on the characters of the book Twilight, which incidentally is the book in the picture below.  I have read them all now and thoroughly enjoyed them, thanks to my son for getting me into them....

I cut the shaped panels on my Cricut using the Stroybook Cart.

I used 3 layers and then used both the circular nestie and oval nestie and applied some perfect pearls around the edges.

I have coloured her using copics and prisma's.

A few flowers and voila, clean and simple for me don't you think.

What a lovely gift for a Twilight fan - must admit I know nothing at all about the series but this is a stunner. The pink is such a glorius colour & the layering works beautifully with the shape accenting the folds of the ribbon. OK - CAS in your style but not CAS to the rest of blogland, that really made me smile, on second stamping behind her & no stamping behind the flowers on the smaller panel - OK I'll agree CAS!!
