My card yesterday inspired my coordinating project. Have you used any of the SU Stencils? Check out the Definitely Decorative Catalog to see more (pgs 28-31). This is the Kind Thoughts Stencil that I used on the On Board Journal. I love it!!
*I used Removable Dotto on my stencil and laid it over my journal.
*Applied Choc Chip Craft ink with a dauber over my stencil. The ink absorbs quickly into the chipboard journal, so I went over the stencil again to keep it as wet as possible.
*Removed the stencil and applied some Clear Embossing Powder and used my heat tool to give the raised, shiny embossed image. SO pretty!!
*Laid the stencil back over, slightly offset, and kreated my shadow again with Bermuda Bay ink. (to keep with my shadow technique of yesterdays card)
*Removed the rhinestones from my Clear Rhinestone Brads and adhered them to my image with a dab of Crystal Effects. Tip: to remove the stone, just pull back brad legs and little prongs and the stone will just pop out.
*Used my dauber and some Soft Suede ink to lightly accent my journal.
*Isolated the words Define Your Life with my Bermuda Bay Marker and stamped onto my journal. A simple look, but I like it.
Then I went on to kreate my bookmark.
*The Lovely Letter 'L' was inked in Choc Chip and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder on Melon Mambo
*Used the square hardware from Silver Hodgepodge Hardware set and adhered my 'L' onto the back with Crystal Effects.
*Covered the back with a square piece of Kaleidoscope DSP(one of the flowers) to keep it pretty and neat (sorry I didn't photo that, but you'll have to take my word that it looks pretty)
*Threaded Bermuda Bay polka dot grosgrain into each end of the holes in the hardware
*Added a Circle Fire Rhinestone at one end - knotted at the other with a Filigree Brad threaded through. Fun little bookmark :)
Any questions, feel free to ask! Leave me a comment and let me know what ya think. I'm trying to decide if I should make a few of these for a craft fair in the fall
