Serenity Bookmark

Here we are at our last day of November Sneak Peek Sets! Do you sometimes look at your blank sheet of card stock and think, “I wish there was a way I could warm it up or add some interest or texture without taking anything away from the main image? Or have you been longing to get your fingers inky and dabble in the mixed media craze? Well, we’re ready for you! Introducing...
SoDistressedGraphic
With Mixed Media all the rage, why not add a background set to your bag of creative tricks? This pattern and background set offers all kinds of images that can be used on their own, or as a way to add "texture" to your cards or creations. The options are endless! How about trying to layer these images for even more fun? This set measures 4" by 6".
 Now anyone who stops by my blog knows that distressed, grunge or this mixed media stuff is just something I have a hard time with. I mean a clean and simple kinda girl just can't see her way through all the stuff... ha!   However today using So Distressed I have created for myself personally a new bookmark. And I LOVE it!  I stamped first in a pink ink the diamond shaped design in the set. Then using the circles in the set a creamy caramel ink over the top. I even then added some very very light yellowish of the smaller splashes in the set. My serenity prayer is from Anemones that I stamped onto the once Classic White card stock using Memento Tuxedo black ink. Layered this panel onto some Color Made Easy Poppy and Rich Brown card stock. Used some of the Color Made Easy Poppy Baby Pink ribbon and some chocolate sheer ribbon that is tied off with a wooden button twine combo. I even distresed the edges and once corner of the bookmark. A little bit of stickles to the grundy background and voila!  See I can do grundge... Well sorta! ha ha
Our team loved getting inky with this clever set, so hop on over for some creative inspiration. And, while you’re hopping remember, we have one more day of….
