Here is the list of what I used:
Leaves by Katie Fox
Distress Stain Gathered Twigs
Distress Inks: Bundled Sage, Pine Needles, Aged Mahogany, Rusty Hinge, Walnut Stain, Seedless Preserves
Archival Ink: Potting Soil
From my stash:
Treasure Gold, small piece of Hessian, embossing folder, Kraft card, home made mica spray, eyelet and setting tool small leaf charm
I started by stamping one of the leaves with Potting Soil archival onto some shrink plastic three times, I then cut them out and shrunk the leaves with my heat tool. I love the detail you get. Here you can see it (after I had mounted them and rubbed some treasure gold around the edges).
Next I created the background panel, it measures exactly 2 by 6". I coloured it with some Bundled Sage Distress Ink and a tiny bit of Walnut Stain around the edges. Then I stamped the Leaves background in Pine Needles Distress Ink.. I ran the bottom part through an embossing folder and then highlighted the raised bits with the Treasure Gold and Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
I then mounted the central panel on a piece of hessian and adhered that to the background panel. This was then adhered to a piece of Kraft card.
I died some seam binding to tone in with my central panel. I used a mix of Gathered Twigs Distress Stain and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink, rubbed straight onto the seem binding and then sprayed with lots of water.
I punched a whole and set an eyelet at the top of the bookmark and added a little charm.
And that was it, - project complete.
Hope you like my bookmark, they are quick and easy to do and make great little gifts. Perhaps I have even inspired you to use some stamps on shrink plastic. It is a great way to use large stamps on small projects!
And don't forget, there are just a few days left to join in our challenge, all the detail can be found HERE
Have a creative week and thank you so much for visiting!!
