Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hello all. Cathy Here.
Well today I have made some bookmarks for your viewing pleasure.  I have made 3 in total for Lost Coast Designs new challenge MINI ME - smaller than a card. Well mine are longer than a card, but definitely smaller, so they still count...
To start out I did the backgrounds all the same. The first two I used Distress inks and the smooching technique. The last one I used Distress Oxide inks and the smooching technique.   

The one above I used pinks and oranges colors in inks on white cardstock. Then I stamped Katzelkraft Monsters all over the edges of the bookmark. Next I stamped the saying from Carmen's Veranda Currently Unsupervised, cut it down to just 2 words, and glued it to the bookmark. When that was done I backed it with some black cardstock. I did that to all 3 of my bookmarks. Then I laminated them.  

 So for this on I used blues and greens of the inks. Next I stamped a small butterfly from the Bugz set. I felt it still needed more so I grabbed my number border stamp and stamped that randomly on it.

Last one!  This time I used the Distress Oxide inks. For this one I used another Katzelkraft stamp that Lost Coast Designs is selling. It is called Hanging Branch Cat. I stamped it at the top of the bookmark. Next I stamped the tree crown on the top of the bookmark to it looks like trees and leaves.  Then I grabbed a saying sticker and added to the bottom. Lastly I added some stars with a stencil and regular distress ink. 

Come join Challenge #54 Mini Me
