Bookmarks with color palette for CTD 501 and IB 28

What colors remind you of nature? meadows? woods? hills and mountains?

These challenges started at different times this week have been the sources of motivation for creating 2 bookmarks. A school district near us has the mascot Timberwolves and colors of dark green, gray, and black. So I decided this evening to fuse the color combos together a bit:

Inspired By #28 Campfire S'mores (colors: kraft, white, dark brown/black, and green from the boxes)
Color Throwdown #501 colors (grey, yellow, kraft, and white)


Here's my shopped supplies from my stockpiles to get ready. You will notice some editing has been done. Until I've played around with combinations and sizes, several changes can occur while in the process of making paper crafted creations. Digital images have had several layers of colored pencils (black, gray, dark brown, light brown) added to them to make them match the color palettes better. Placement of elements is different between the two. Thinking of you border is different on each bookmark as well as what was used as the base and what was used for the background.

#1: CTD 501

#2: IB 28

Supply sources:
a. damask paper used for a backdrop and the dotted papers are= The Paper Studio
b. dark pine green and medium gray cardstock= The Paper Studio
c. marbled caramel thin weight cardstock and putty gray cardstock=Colorbok
d. kraft cardstock=?
