So I made her a few more... I was only going to make 1 or 2, but as you can see I got carried away - again.
The Zentangle one was the first one I made and uses Quietfire Design Nature QuoteMarks on the back. I new I was going to hot laminate it and didn't want to waste part of a laminating pouch, and that's when I started making the rest BIG GRIN. There aren't enough small sized quotes I could use, so created the backs with quotes from my database in an Excel program and then printed it out. So when she needs a lift, she can read the backs.
Zentangle: I used a Zig Writer for outlining and a Pentel pocket brush pen to color in the black areas.
These were the next ones I made, using a word that was in one of the quotes.
Poppy: Stamped (Local King Rubber "Poppy2) with Versafine Black Onyx and colored with Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils, and a waterbrush. The sky was colored with Prisma colored pencils.
Sunflowers: (Flourishes "Gerbera Daisies") I didn't have a sunflower stamp, so used the daisy stamp and colored with the Derwent pencils in bright yellow to mimic a sunflower... Sky colored with the Prisma pencils.
Strawberries: I digitally printed that onto copy paper and used a Chart Pak pen to transfer the image to my cardstock bookmark then with the same Derwent and Prisma pencils. Stamped the birdhouse (Flourishes "Friendly Reminders").
Sabrina: And then I was in a mood to do a very personal bookmark for her. Drew in the letters of her name and then just drew out lines, Colored with the Derwent and did some doodling within the letters.
