I'm taking part in a bookmark swap over on UK Stampers. I'm making a bookmark for Jill who is a reasonably new member of the forum so I checked with her to make sure I could make something to her tastes! She likes reading fantasy novels, doesn't like pink and is into the grungier style. Hope I managed to make something that fits the bill!
I started with two pieces of canvas photo paper and a piece of cereal box cardboard sandwiched in the middle. The front has Dymo lettering, a stamped word, lettering cut from an old book page and Tim Holtz masks along with stamped butterflies and ink sponged through sequin waste. I doodled around the edges of the masked lettering, just because the mood took me that way!
The back just has the butterlfies and sponging. The whole thing had a quick spritz of Krylon matt finish to make it more durable and ensure there won't be any risk of ink transferring onto book pages!
