A Crafty Bookmark

I've been so busy lately that I've really struggled to set time aside to play, let alone post about it here...But here is my entry for a brand new Challenge Blog over at CRAFTY INDIVIDUALS.      I've used a STAMPBORD square piece, as well as the following stamps from CRAFTY INDIVIDUALS, butterflies, and Once Upon a Time
I started by trimming a piece of leather using a couple of Alterations dies, painting the strip with some white acrylic paint, and stamping the butterflies using jet black Archival ink.      I then covered a square piece of STAMPBORD with red StaZon ink, and I stamped the Once Upon a Time image twice, once onto a scrap piece of cardstock, and a second time onto the STAMPBORD square.       I highlighted the little girl image with a scratch tool and covered the square with a coat of DM.      The words were cut out and matted with some pp, and the fabric flowers were cut out using another Alterations die, with a gem brad as a finishing touch.         This bookmark has now gone to a new home : )   And if you have some time to spare, make sure you visit the CRAFTY INDIVIDUALS blog.

Your bookmark is wonderful. I'm a real Bookworm so always like to see handmade bookmarks.
