WOW! I did it!

This is my first blog post! Thanks to the ladies on flickr, their advice and encouragement gav me the push I needed to do this!  So I'll get right down to it. Tonight I created  bookmarks for my daughters. The strawberry bookmark is stamped with Hero Arts Simply the best/ strawberry and a flower from Papertrey Ink Beautiful Blooms II. The sentiment is from Hero Arts Everyday Sayings. The inks I used are StazOn jet black, distress inks in peeled paint and fired brick. I used colored pencils to color strawberries and flowers and added pearl accents. For the umbrella bookmark I used stamps from Hampton Arts/ rain boots, umbrella and rain drop from Papertrey Ink Scattered Showers, flower from PTI Beautiful Blooms II,  dragonfly and sentiment from Hero Arts Good Fortune and Everyday Sayings. The inks I used are StazOn jet black, Hero Arts soft stone and soft blossom and a darker blue ink from studio g. I used colored pencils for umbrella, flower and boots and added pearls. Then I painted them with clear rock candy crackle paint. After they dried, I glued them to black matting.
 Thanks for looking!
