Magnolia Down Under Challenge #25 AND Simon Says Stamp
For The Magnolia Down Under Challenge #25 and the Just Magnolia - Simon says stamp monthly challenge (WOO HOO 2 challenges complete in one!!), we were asked to Distress. I made this super cute bookmark for my husband. He is getting back into reading and I thought he needed a cute, yet masculine, homemade bookmark. I distressed the outer edges of the bookmark. The image is Edwin (can't remember the exact title of it sorry), the stack of books are also from Magnolia, of course it was all coloured with my copics! I textured the background with Bermuda Blue (I think that's what it was called) ink from Stampin' Up and my sea sponge. The strip of paper has sparkly blue circles, it was from my stash of course! OH, and I used my 3-d Lacquer for Edwin's eye glasses to give it that glassy look! I added a piece of fiber through a blue eyelet for the top, to try and help keep his place! I think it turned out pretty good! Thanks for looking!!
