I chose to work with the Little Darlings "First Bell" image for this challenge. She's absolutely the sweetest thing and available right now at Love To Stamp, so head of over now and get yours! She was a ton of fun to color with her long flowing hair and skirt. I enjoyed it so much that I've actually started coloring her again for another project! You'll see that another time :-) As you know, I love rich, dark colors. I picked up this paper at a local craft store and intended on using it for a boy card. Then I thought "why can't it be used for a girl project?". We're always using purples and pinks for girls, but girls can love Autumn colors too. So, here it is. It's for a girl and it's got blue, orange, gold, green.....and I LOVE IT!
I found this notebook at Joann's and thought it would be great covered and decorated for school. I added a pocket on the front for the bookmark. The ribbon is actually some Halloween ribbon that I had in my ribbon drawer from last year. The text is an old rub-on from my old scrapbooking days. The scallop was cut using a SU punch.
Here's a closeup of the bookmark. I colored the image with Copics, but failed to keep track of the colors. Sorry! The ribbons are all from my stash and I think some are SU. The flowers are from WOC and Magnolia. There's a little doily in the background and I think it's from MS. I picked up the sentiment at a local rubber stamp show over the weekend but I already peeled the sticker off of it! Sorry again! I'm not doin' really well on the materials list on this one!
