Basic Grey Challenge #23 - Color Challenge

This week is the week for color challenges (which I love)! I decided to choose the color combo Pink and Brown for the Basic Grey challenge this week! No surprise there huh?! :) Since I needed a bookmark for my women's literature class I decided to get out my WOJ Melinda reading book stamp (that you can get from Loreen at Wish On A Scrap)! I got the bookmark idea from Inge! She makes the most adorable projects and when I saw this bookmark and tutorial that she made a while back I couldn't help but save it for future reference.

I colored Melinda with my Copics and used Shimmerz Blingz in pixie dust on her wings. I used the Bittersweet papers from Basic Grey which reminds me that I need to get another packet of these papers as they are my favorite! Punches used were of course Martha borders punches and my SU round tab punch. Lace is a new purchase from Joanns. I also used my new curved rectangle nesties with my corner grunge stamp (I used momento rich cocoa on the pink cs and dazzling champagne versamark on the chocolate chip cs). Ribbon, and eyelets are from my stash.

And here is the back of the bookmark! I really like how this turned out and now I can't seem to put my book down!

Hope you all have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!

I am off to work on a literature paper that I have due next week! :(

Love your book mark. You seem to make learning fun. I guess if I had been more creative during my college days maybe I would have enjoyed it more.
