Joy Clair- New Release Blog Hop

It's time for the new release for Joy Clair and there are so many great sets!!! Hope you are as excited about them as we are and have enjoyed the hop! For  the release hop I'm using Creeping it Real with a dip dyed technique to make bookmarks. 

I used watercolor paper with a hand torn edge at the bottom. I slowly layered the color on making sure the color was more concentrated at the bottom to create an ombre look... as if the paper were dipped in paint a few times. 


I then trimmed the paper in half to create two book marks. Used the witch image from Creeping it Real and heat embossed it on the bookmarks. I added the watercolor layer onto black cardstock that had a little bit of washi tape added to the top and bottom. Punched a hole at the top for my ribbon and twine. I decided I needed a little something else on them, so I die cut some bats our of Rinea foil and adhered the to finish the bookmarks.


Here is the list for the hop... if you haven't checked them all out you can find them below! Hope you've been commenting for a chance to win a $25 gift card to the Joy Clair store
