Good morning lovelies! How are you? I'm feeling rested now after the madness of the pink sweatfest - probably won't still be after this mornings run though - lol!!!!!
Today I've got a bookmark to show you that I've made - it'll probably be for my husband as he's an avid reader - he reads what I call 'nasty books' - you know Stephen King, Dean Koontz and the like - the ones I've read have had good stories but I find them too disturbing! I must just be a delicate flower. Anyway - here it is.
I made this piece for the Craft stamper Challenge - they want you to use one/all of the techniques from the article in the November magazine - now having misplaced my magazine - it wouldn't have happened if I hadn't had a tidy up last week - I had to do this from memory. My tag includes two of the splatter techniques I think - the spritzing splatter and the ink stamp splatter. I started with a size 10 manilla tag and added the stamped images - these are from Sheena douglass's little bit magical set. I coloured the inkwell then masked it and stamped the feather in versa and added WOW powders(opaque white) before heat setting. Then I added dylusions sprays in turquoise and purple then distress ink iced spruce. I stamped a script stamp in grey stazon then added the blue splatter stamp using chipped sapphire Distress ink which I also added around the edges of the tag which I cut down a little too. Finally the ribbon!
I'd like to enter this bookmark into the following challenges:
