Bookmarks..

Are one thing I am always finding myself without - despite the fact that I do actually have quite a lot around somewhere!! So the challenge at OPH to create a bookmark was pretty apt, as I am currently in need of one.

I created two using collage and stamping techniques. I tore a text page and inked the edge in dark brown then glued to the background. I inked a word stamp in Versamark and stamped over the top, then added either clear emobssing powder and red distress embossing powder, then rubbed distress ink over the top once cool to make it stand out. To the left one I added the butterfly inchie stamp coloured with distress inks, and to the right I stamped some ink blots over the top and finished both by chalking the edges.

They are both wonderful...I love how you used your text scrap to make the second and incorporting the inchi on the left one is marvelous...

Both are Fabulous! Hope you enjoy using them.
