Crafts Galore Encore Design Team - Kitten and Puppies

 Happy March!
 Time for a new challenge for February at the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge Blog. 

I have the privilege of being on their Design Team.

The theme is always Anything Goes.

Our sponsor for March is Morgan's Art World. As a prize, they are generously offering three digital images including the one I used here.

I was given a digi stamp to work with and I chose this adorable puppy and kitten image. I decided to create a bookmark, since the image is tall and narrow:
I printed the image on white card.  I colored it 
with Prismacolor Premier Pencils. I blended the colors using a Prismacolor Colorless Blending marker. I added some glitter to the leaves and a few drops of Nuvo clear drops for added interest. I inked the edges of the image using a craft sponge and distress ink. I used a scrap of printed paper from my stash of digital papers for the mat. It's from my Aster Garden paper pack. I then layered it on to a piece of old CTMH cardstock that I have had FOREVER. 

After punching a hole at the top, I used a gummed reinforcement that I stamped and distressed by the page full. Very handy to have around.
The ribbon is from my stash. The zipper edging is also from CTMH long ago.
The ribbon is from a trip I took years ago to the Offray Ribbon Outlet in Pennsylvania. I got soooo much ribbon! I only have a few inches of this one left.

I hope get a chance to hop over to Morgan's Art World
And be sure to enter our challenge to have a chance to win their prize!

That' all for now...enjoy the process!
