There seems to be so many heart/love designs around at the moment, what with Valentines being next month, so I broke open the packet to the Inky Doodles stamp set I bought last year, Birdie Heart, and then designed my bookmark around some of the stamps.
I had a plain cut out shape from my Silhouette Cameo sitting on my desk, so cut another out using some gorgeous Studiolight card (which I bought at the NEC in November) to make the back of the bookmark. I stamped the front using Picked Raspberry Distress Ink - the 'hessian' background (fab!), heart borders and bird. The bird was coloured in with Spectrum Noir pens - BP1 and BP6, plus a Gelly Roll Pen (Silver Star) for a bit of bling. I also inked the edges with the same inkpad. A piece of gorgeous lace from stash (probably bought from the Ribbon Girl shop) was sandwiched between the 2 pieces of card - and there you have it - a pretty and more unusually shaped bookmark.
I enter this into the following challenges -
Totally Gorjuss - #165, Anything Goes with Ribbon
Fun with Shapes and More - #125, A Different Cardshape (not square)
Lady Bug Crafts - #5, Anything but a Card
Lia Stampz - #32, Something New
