Never Enough Time, and Never Enough Bookmarks...

I usually only read one book at a time, but I sometimes like to jump from book to book depending on my mood !?      Anyway, for this week, Stampotique's challenge was to use acetate, so this gave me the idea for another quick bookmark.




I cut a piece of acetate to measure 12" x 2", folded it in half, and used my favourite Stampotique Originals image, HEAD, stamping him using black StaZon, adding some bronze acrylic paint to the underside, and some teal acrylic paint over that (I like how the brushstrokes can be seen close up), and adding some printed script writing (stuck with DM)     I then added the quote, and the fibres as a finishing touch, doesn't he look cute?     There's still time to enter this fun challenge, so go on, get inked !
