Bookmark


Hello, this is Laurence today to show you a bookmark. You have certainly seen on the Hey little flower stamp sheet that the flowers perfectly coordinate with each other. I first started to stamp the solid flower using a  chalk inkpad in two different colors. Chalk inkpads is drying very quickly and you do not need to wait. I used the second stamp that outlines the same flowers and heat embossed it with WOW Primary Bluetiful. The sentiment is heat embossed with WOW Opaque Vanilla white and glued on my background.
 
Do you know that you may also create your own embellishments with your stamps… I used shrink plastic and stamped the same flower with blue ink. Cut out and punch a hole in the middle. Remember that the hole will also shrink and make your hole big enough to pass your twine. Heat up the plastic with your heat tool until it starts to wrinkle and shrink. When it stops wrinkling use an acrylic block and put pressure on the image to flatten it.


I can't wait to see what you create for this month challenge.
