Bookmark It!

Hi Peeps,

Here is a bookmark that I made for a swap I was involved in a couple of months ago.

The base is mountboard and I coloured both sides with Dusty Concord and Faded Jeans Distress Inks. I added scratches to the surface using a little bit of white paint and the edge of an offcut of mountboard.

Side 1

The stamping on this side was made using black Versafine ink and some clear Inkadinkado stamps, they are so lush and lovely to use! The sentiment is from Stamp Attack.




I used a white pen to colour in some of the details on the stamped image to lift it slightly as it did appear to be a bit dark.








Side 2

For side 2, I used a Penny Black sentiment stamp and then randomly stamped the dandelion head from an Art Journey u/m stamp sheet. I added some glitter Diamond Stickles to bling it up a bit.




The finishing touch was a little tassle to tie onto the bookmark....I used white embroidery yarn and and just wound this around my fingers, tied it tight together and added a length of yarn as a tie.

Thanks for looking!
