Stampers for Others Stampin' Up! Team and HSSCC315

Hi friends! A quick blog tonight to meet 2 challenges: one for my Stampin' Up! Demo Team (SFO) (Private Facebook Group) and one for Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge:
Here is the challenge from my SFO: "Last weekly challenge for May!!! for this weekly challenge we are not going to have a sketch... this week from May 26-June 1, we are going to do a NO CARD project... this can be anything BUT a card!!!"
I decided to create a couple of bookmarks with my new to me Botanical Bliss Bundle. I used Shimmery White paper for the bookmark on the left with the rose top and Watercolor Paper for the one of the right with the birds. The same 3 challenge colors were used for both with a wet-on-wet technique using Stampin' refills. Once dry, I cut into 2" strips and ran them through the Big Shot with the Botanical Bliss Thinlits.
To mount this bookmark, a piece of Whisper White Thick card stock was cut about an inch larger and the top was put through the Big Shot with a Stitched Layering Circle which created a stitched arched top. Just the bottom of the watercolor piece was run through the Big Shot with a Layering Stitched Square so that it has a nice stitched edge. A hole was created with the Detailed Trio Punch.
For the rose, a piece of Whisper White Thick card stock was cut a little larger than the colored piece. I ran the white card stock through the Big Shot again with the Rose Botanical Bliss Thinlit. The bottom of the colored piece was die cut with a Layering Square Scallop Shape for that nice ripple effect.
They were both finished with heat embossing: White Stampin' Emboss Powder and Artfully Aware stamp set sentiment for the rose and Memento Black Ink with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder for the word "Friend" from the Botanical Bliss stamp set for the bird.
Well, I thought I was done once I glued them together with Tombow Liquid Adhesive. But, I had washed my hands and dribbled a large blob water onto the rose card under the sentiment. It really stood out like a sore thumb! Trying to figure what to do, I found the butterfly punched form the Butterfly Duet Punch just out of Whisper White card stock was perfect! What's the old saying...something about mistakes being the chance for embellishments?!
Which paper do you prefer? I like the watercolor paper because I left more white showing and the ink didn't blend quite as much as the Shimmery White paper. But I do love the sparkle on the Shimmery White bookmark.
