Hello Stampers! Today I have an inky bookmark to share with you.
I cut a piece of Grungeboard, 20 x 6 cm, then applied Distress Stains in faded jeans, dusty concord & chipped sapphire to it. The Distress Stains are still on special offer HERE, on The Artistic Stamper Website. I spritzed with water to blend the colours, then dried with a heat gun.
Next, I used Black Archival Ink to stamp the words from the Journaling Words & Creative Art Thoughts Plates repeatedly down the bookmark, then I inked the edges with the black ink. I stamped the small dancer from the Dance Plate, 3 times onto white card, using faded jeans, dusty concord & chipped sapphire Distress Inks, then cut them all out. I glued them to the bookmark, as shown in the photo, using Glossy Accents.
I smeared Rock Candy Distress Stickles all over the bookmark, then dried this with a heat gun. I used dusty concord Distress Stains to colour some seam binding, then stamped the word Dance with the black Archival Ink. I punched a hole at the top of the bookmark, added an eyelet & some of the seam binding, leaving a piece to add to the bottom edge. Finally, I added some crystal beads to the top to finish.
Thanks for looking,
