Butterfly Bookmarks

I was inspired by Dawn Griffiths Fun Flowers Bookmark (see here), to make a bookmark, but I really wanted to use the Beautiful Butterflies Die.

I created two, one in Marina Mist and one in Rich Razzleberry.

I cut two butterflies from some Watercolour paper, then stamped them with the flower from the Elements of Style Stamp Set. I really like to watercolour and this set is perfect for it. I used my Aqua Painter to Watercolour them, the colours I used were Baja Breeze, Marina Mist and Not Quite Navy and Rich Razzleberry and Bravo Burgundy. I also cut two larger butterflies from some Designer Series Pattern Paper in Marina Mist and Rich Razzleberry.

The Marina Mist bookmark has an antique brad in the middle, while the Rich Razzleberry bookmark has a flower brad. I could have added a bit more to them, but I decided to keep them as they were.


  1. These are perfect! I might just "borrow" this idea for my stamp club I think, thanks for sharing xx

  2. I agree Ali, these are delightful and whimsical. The colours are beautiful, as is your watercolouring. I am definitely going to be CASEing these beauties too!! ♥

  3. LOVE the idea and the colours are just GORGEOUS!!!!

  4. When are we making these in class Alison????? Don't hold out on us!!!! Love them.
