I luv reedin!! bookmark

Hey there bloggers,
I have had a great weekend of inkiness and craftiness, so will have a few things to blog!!! Yipee!!
Anyway here is my offering today, a bookmark for the make a bookmark challenge at stampotique...
I am entering this for the make a bookmark challenge @ http://stampotiquedesignerschallenge.blogspot.com/

I decided to keep 3-d embellies to a minimum as the bookmark needs to fit in the book and add interest with layers of colours and stamps instead...hope that has worked!?!

I smooshed dusty concord and peeled paint onto a craft mat, spritzed and splooshed the bookmark blank into the colours.Then dried with a heat tool and repeated until I was happy.Once dry I stamped Daniels hearts inked with White paint dabber. I stamped the gorgeous smiley little man onto the background and then covered with one stamped onto a book page, and coloured the heart and shoes using dusty concord.

Lastly I stamped and cut out some of the hearts onto an old book page and printed the caption, using pc onto old book page.
This is my first foray into using my stampotique stamps, which have been looking at me for ages all clean and new.

Thanks for stopping by, have a happy crafty day,
