Morning Everyone - hope you're well this morning.
I have a quick project to share with you this morning for this week's challenge over at Cupcake Craft Challenge where the theme is.......bookworm. You can create anything with a book on it, or a bookmark.
I went for a bookmark!
If I'm honest I'm not entirely happy with this project, its not as pretty as I wanted it to be.
I used pink card as the base and topped that with black and white polka dot paper. I used my Martha Stewart edge cutter to punch a pretty border onto the bottom of the polka dot paper, and used a plain hole punch at the top for my ribbon hole. I added a little pink ribbon before finally sticking the polka dot paper onto the pink card.
I then stamped a pretty flower image onto a piece of white card, adding the sentiment "A Perfect Day". I think the perfect day is often topped off with a little reading! I coloured the card using my spun sugar distress ink from Tim Holtz - I love this colour! Next I backed my stamped image with some more pink card, and attached that to the polks dot paper.
This is probably the widest and thickest bookmark you'll ever come across! At least you won't loose your page!
Finally I added the embellishments - a sticky gem to the bottom of the ribbon to cover the hole and I used me stickles to add a little sparkle to my flowers.
Thanks for popping by today, see you again soon.
