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.
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.
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!
