Yes, you guessed it - time for a new challenge over at Creative Moments, and our sponsor this fortnight is Bloobell, who provided us with two very quirky images to use - Frog Princess and Zen.
With the Frog Princess image Ithought it would make a perfect corner bookmark (fantasy childrens tales involving a princess needing to kiss a frog etc). I chose green as my one extra colour. The bookmark was made out of black glitter cardstock using the template that can be found at http://www.instructables.com/id/Cute-Corner-Bookmarks/. I did change the size to match my image size though, hence mine not actually being square. I layered the inside panel with washi tape, using a co-ordinating strip across the top and bottom. The image was coloured with promarkers and attached to the diagonal front piece.
The Zen image took a little more thinking about. I decided to go for meditative purple as the extra colour. I stamped the background using a crackle effect stamp from my stash and heat embossing with Heat It Up Black Sparkle embossing powder, on a scalloped card base.I die-cut the image using X-cut nesting large label dies, and painted the edge with my new Mica powders (obviously using the purple) which gives a lovely metallic shimmer. The image was coloured with promarkers and ribbon, bows and sentiment finished off the card.
