Belli Challenge #60 - bookmarks

This week's Belli Challenge is to make bookmarks! Those are always fun and easy to make, and I always need bookmarks. I started off with this Spirit of Spring image from Rubbernecker. After I made the first one, I couldn't stop until I made all four of these, representing the four seasons (Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter).






I stamped each of these images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored them with Copic Markers. I just pulled various ribbons from my stash that complemented the colors I had used for coloring. There are no brads or glitter or anything bulky on these because I wanted to actually use these for bookmarks. Bookmarks are supposed to be flat so they will stay in place, right? :-)

Go check out what the other Belli Girls have created on the Belli blog. You'll be blown away by the diversity and creativity of their bookmarks. :-)
