In my last post, I showed you some new materials that I was anxious to work with. I've had a lot of fun with these- my men's bookmarks are already listed on my Etsy shop! See them here: http://www.bgardencreations.etsy.com . Today, I played with some of my new pressed flowers, and I'm excited to give you a preview of what I did!
Here is my first stab at those cute little cornflowers:
I love the red, white and blue- so cute with the Fourth of July less than two months away!
Here's a new twist on one of my standard designs, the True Blue Butterfly Delphinium:
With this design, I have put the flowers into little white windows framed with yellow, rather than have them on a plain white background. I really like this look, though it does push the limits of what the laminator can handle in terms of thickness! I did one of these before and sent it to my best friend, Kendra, and she said she likes this better than the standard design, so I thought I'd make a few more like it.
And finally, here are those fantastic azaleas I posted about last time!
These are so much fun to work with- such a vibrant, gorgeous color! I used the window design here too, and I really like it.
Here's where I need some feedback though, so I thought I'd make it fun and make a contest out of it (and maybe get some new followers in the process, hint hint...) I can't decide on the ribbon color for this bookmark. I didn't have time to go out and shop for new ribbon, so I worked with what I have already, and came up with three options. Here they are:
Pale Pink Ribbon
So...the contest! Since I am still working on getting my Facebook fan page going, we'll use the blog comments for this. Sign up to follow my blog and leave me a comment with your favorite ribbon color for this design, and I'll enter your name into a drawing for a bookmark in that design, free, before I even list the new design in my shop! The deadline to enter is Friday, May 28 at 8:00pm Pacific (11pm Eastern). I'll post the winner over the Memorial Day weekend and contact them for mailing information via email. Good luck everyone!
