Graceful Glass - Stampin' Blends

Hello, Crafters.

Although I found it easier to go over the lines using Stampin' 
Blends, they were much easier to use then the Marker Pens. 
I haven't been able to do a true comparison between the two
 mediums because I don't have the Blends in the five new InColours. 
The colours I used for today's bookmarkers are Light Cherry 
Cobbler roses, Light Night of Navy irises, Dark Pink Pirouette
lilies (this colour is retiring on 31st May 2018), Dark Pool 
Party flowers, and all the stems and leaves are in Dark Old Olive. 
As yesterday's colours were very vibrant I was able to use 
Soft Sea Foam Cardstock (CS) as a base for the bookmarks. 

I decided to use our Thick Very Vanilla, A4 CS for today's
 softer colours. Another change I made today was that I
 trimmed the top and bottom of the four 1½” strips of the
 Graceful Glass 6"x6" Designer Vellum.

 I wanted it to be the right length to fit onto the 6½” x 2" 
CS bookmarks, without being caught in the Scalloped Tag 
Topper Punch - I didn't like the look on yesterday's bookmarks! 
 Another change I made was yesterday I used our ½” Very
 Vanilla Lace instead of the Striped Lemon Lime Twist
 Ribbon to go through the top of the bookmarker.

 I  only used one Glue Dot per bookmark to hold the Lace
 Ribbon in place, and that was the one I explained from
 the back of the card yesterday.

 In this pack of Designer Vellum, there are 24 sheets, with
 two sheets of each twelve designs, whicn means, I need to 
buy another pack when I want to make more 
bookmarks like these! LOL!
Later today, I'm going to try and make time to make some more 
bookmarks wth some of the other designs in the pack of Designer
 Vellum.  I hope you've enjoyed this comaprison between the 
Marker Pens and Stampin' Blends on out Graceful Glass Designer
 Vellum that will be available in the new 2018 - 2019 Annual Catalogue 
which goes live on 1st June 2018! Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
