This week the challenge over at Stampotique is A Bookmark and has been set by the amazingly talented Kate Crane!
Here is my offering......
I tried taking photos with a variety of cameras and in a variety of places, but not one of them shows up the sheen that was on the bookmark :( I created the background using acrylic paints, then stencilled the stars using Viva metallic paint. I 'splattered' a little watery, silver paint all over and then sprayed with Glimmer Mist when the paint was dry.
I stamped Great Moon onto some card I had roughly painted silver, then cut it out. I also stamped the image directly onto the bookmark and stuck the cut out moon and star on top of this one. The owl is stamped onto white card, painted with acrylics and cut out. The sentiment is computer generated and the second owl is perched on a piece of old book paper. My usual bit of doodling was the finishing touch!!
Here's a bit of a closer view...
I then laminated the bookmark and threaded a ribbon through the top....this photo is really bad, as I knew it would be, because of the reflection from the laminate, but I hope you get the general idea!
My bookmark is already in use....although this will be temporary, as I am already the owner of a beautiful bookmark, which was a gift from my lovely friend, Helen. Here it is......and I'm sure you will see why and don't want to replace it at the moment!!
Thanks for looking and for leaving your lovely comments!!
