Feature a Creature

This month our theme in the Stamping Sensation is: Feature a creature.  It can be any creature you can think of. I made a bookmark with little birdies.

For the bookmark base I smudged different Distress inks (colors listed below) to the plastic sheet, sprayed it with water and placed watercolor cardstock into the inks. After drying the bookmark with heat tool, I placed it to the inks again. After I was pleased with the background I stamped some script all over it with stamp from DoCraft Botanical Print set and Memento Rich Cocoa ink.

I used Crafty Individuals Birds and Branches stamp set. Branches and leaves was inked with Memento Pistachio ink and birds with Rich Cocoa ink.After stamping I took waterbrush and added some water to the image. Then everything was dry, I added some details with black, green and white pens.

Sentiment is computer generated and printed out to the white cardstock. I cutted sentiment to pieces and inked them with Memento Desert Sand ink.

Sentiment: "Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body."

I kept the back sidde of my bookmark very simple. It is colored same as front and I draw some white stitching lines. 

We are thrilled to have Little Claire as this months sponsor again who are offering a fab £35 store voucher to spend on their products.
