The tropical bookmark

I wanted to take a minute to share a fun bookmark I created.  We are off on an adventure and a new book and a new bookmark were in order.  
 Because of the fun supplies and techniques I also thought it fit the Mixed Media monthly challenge pretty nicely.  
I started out by adding color to my piece of watercolor paper with some Distress Stains and a spritz of water.  Before the Distress Inks were completely dry, I came back and added white embossing paste with a stencil.  That added a little bit of color to the white.  I then left that to dry.  To finish off that goodness I gave it some sprays of a Heidi Swapp color ink in Citron. I liked what that added to the embossing paste.  That amazing, relaxing sentiment is from Printworks and the layered flower is from a set by Altenew. I wanted to add a fun accent to this so I added the sentiment piece with a mini stapler.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
