Copy cat...

 For Serendipity Stamps first April Challenge we were given this photo and told to use it as inspiration for creating our project.  Below is the photo... I loved the natural feel of the photo and wanted my piece to have the same feel.

Here is the tag I created from the inspiration. Another vintage feel project guess that is where my creativity is at lately.

~Dragonfly North Serendipity Stamp (111B)
~Dragon Fly Dreams Serendipity Stamp (110B)
~Tiny graph patterned paper in white and brown
~Circle punches or circle cutter
~Brown Ink
~Black and brown pen
~Brown ribbon
~Brown embroidery floss
~One Brass brad
~Hole punch

1. First cut tag from white grid paper (I free handed it).  Ink the edges in brown and punch a hole at the top.
2. Cut five circles out of light grid and five slightly bigger from brown.  Stamp dragonfly on light, and mat with brown.
3.  Use a second generation stamping technique with the dragonflies on tag base.  Stamp Dragonfly dreams towards bottom of tag.  Adhere circles randomly on tag.
4.Tie floss around bottom of tag, and put brad over where all the strands cross. Tie ribbon through hole. 
5. Use black and brown pen to add doodles all over the tag.  For the black dots I used the negative of the circle punch to add the dotted circles to the background.

Now please visit the other design team members blogs.... chocked full of inspiration!

I love how you interpreted the challenge, Amy. This bookmark has a very rustic, natural feel to it!
