FWF Friday

Hey! Its Friends with Flair Friday again! If this is your first stop then you should go on over to the Unity Stamp Co. Blog to get a list of blogs participating in the blog hop and to get the rules on how you could win a bunch of stamps JUST for commenting on a blog!! How cool is that!

To be honest, I had to rush to get something done for the hop today. I signed up for the hop yesterday, before I had anything made, and then my 3 year old got really clingy and I couldn't get away from him long enough to do anything! So, as soon as he was asleep last night I figured that I would get at something. The thing is, I needed to do something quick because he was not feeling well and who knows when he would be waking up again! I figured that I would make a couple of bookmarks, since I have been using scraps of paper or pieces of the Canadian Tire flyer to hold my page in the last few books that I have read! They are really simple and took no time at all. I didn't add any layers to them either because I like a nice, flat bookmark. I apologize for the pictures...for some reason the blue ink that I used just didn't want to show up right! Anyways, here they are:



For this one I used a paper towel to blot and distress all over the paper and around the edges with Unity Haystack ink. Then I stamped it using the music sheet stamp from the "Music Of My Heart" set from Ippity using Raw Sienna Unity ink. Then I used Colorbox ink to stamp the butterfly and sentiment from the Ippity "Cherish Your Dreams" set. Then I added the ribbon and voila! Done!



This one was blotted with the paper towel using haystack ink as well but the design and grooves on the paper towel gave a really awesome texture print to the paper. Then I just added the stars and moons as well as the WISH sentiment from the "Moon Beams & Heart Strings" Ippity set. Then, again, added a little bit of ribbon and it was finished! Easy peasy!

Well, that's all I have for you today. Now, keep on hopping to see what everyone else has created!

Love, Patricia
