Happy Tuesday! Hope you're week has started off wonderfully - and if not, I hope it gets better from here on in ;)
Today I'm sharing this mixed media bookmark over at the Scrapendipity Way Of Life blog. Recently I joined a swap where a group of ladies made papercrafted items and swapped them. I made these bookmarks for my project!
I started off with a piece of cardstock that came in the size of a bookmark, but you could simply cut the size you'd like. Then, I Mod Podged on a pattern piece - you can find old patterns at most second hand stores and they're great for this! I used Dylusions Spray Mists to spray on a yellow and pink background, which combined to create the orange in the middle - so cool!
I used some stitching stamps and black ink to stamp directly on my background and then stamped and heat embossed the flower and dressform images. Of course I had to use some Distress Sprays to spritz my seam binding ribbon and then put it through a hole I punched with my Crop-O-Dile and added an eyelet to. On the back I stamped a fun stamp with some Kaleidoscope Ink to create a graduated green image and signed the bottom.
Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope this inspires you to create a fun bookmark for your own books or as a gift for someone :)
