Today I've got something a bit different for you... the other day I was thinking about a handmade present I could send to my friend in Spain... I wanted to make something personalised and easy to send! So knowing that my friends loves reading... I decided to make a bookmark for her! I really enjoyed making it and I know it won't be my last!
I created the tag from Kraft Card.
I printed a quote from one of my friend's favourite authors, Federico Garcia Lorca
in one of my favourite papers at the moment, from Pebbles Front Porch paper pad.
The image is from Emerald Faeries (A & T digital shop), and it's so cute!!! It's called "Bindie". I know I'm going to use it a lot for this type of projects!
I coloured the image using my Promarkers.
I used: Cocoa, Raw Sienna, Sandstone, Buttercup, Vanilla, Almond, blossom, Leaf Green, Cornflower, lavender, Poppy, Moss, Cool Grey 1, tulip yellow
I inked the sky with a blue ink pad.
The letters for my friend's name are from Do Crafts Papermania Madame Payraud's mini alphabet stickers.
I inked around the bookmark with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tea Dye and with normal blue ink pad.
I used some Script washi tape at the top to blend the paper with the kraft paper.
I finished off with a bit of gold string I've had in my stash for ages.
I also covered the whole bookmark with Americana Matte Varnish, to make the bookmark sturdy and to protect it.
I really love how it ended up!
I would like to enter my bookmark in the following challenges:
Just inspirational monthly challenge - Family and Friends (bookmark made for my friend)
I really hope you like my first ever bookmark!!!
sometimes is good to try something different!
