Bookmark with Origami Flower

Happy Sunday Everyone! Over at our lovely-hAnglar-only challenge blog is a new challenge starting today! This fortnights theme is a color challenge:

For my challenge creation I made a corner bookmark with an Origami flower dangle. It is called a Kusudama flower. When browsing the web a few weeks ago I saw a bookmark with a flower like that attached and just loved the idea and wanted to try it. Unfortunately I don't know anymore where it was.
This was actually my first try with Origami at all. So please be lenient with me as it is not perfect at all. But I had so much fun folding and assembling it. I'm pretty sure I like to try some more Origami folding in the future! I colored the image using Copics and airbrushed around it. The DP is a digital paper from Nitwitt Designs.

I colored the image using Copics and airbrushed around it. Color used are E11, E01, E00 & E000 for skin -  Blues: B21, B24, B28 - Brown/Hair: E31, E34, E39 - Cream: E40, E41, E43 - Wings: B000, B0000 - Airbrushing: E42

And here's a close-up on the Kusudama flower. For the dangle I used a brown ribbon and also attached a few pearls to it (can't be seen in this photo). As the flower center I added a button.

The DP is digital paper from Nitwitt Designs. Dies and punches used are Spellbinders and EK Success. Rhinestone swirls are from Recollections. 

I hope you like to join in our fun challenge and I'm looking forward seeing your creation HERE

Thanks for stopping by and please come back tomorrow for the start of a new BnW challenge :-)

Luv 'n Hugs
