Just Aqua Paint It...

Good Morning Friends!  I'm sharing a quick project we made at my September workshops. It's a book mark made with Shimmery White cardstock.  You can also use the new Thick Whisper White cardstock!  This is such a simple gift to add with a good book for a friend, a loved one, a shut in and it's simple to make!

First you cut your piece of cardstock 2" X (your desired length) and punch the top to make it decorative.  I used the Scalloped Tag Topper. Next I used the Flowering Flourishes stamp set to stamp the design in VersaMark, covered it with White embossing powder and heat embossed it. I used my Aqua Painters to do a wash, coloring over the embossed images. The colors I used on this book mark are Lost Lagoon and Melon Mambo.  I also used my daubers to make the colors darker in spots.  You could do the entire project with daubers if you don't have the Aqua Painters.  Last, I inked around the edges with my dauber and Lost Lagoon Ink and tied some ribbon and sequins to the top using Linen Thread. You can stamp and decorate the back or you can just color the back and use the space to note what books you have read or a personal note.  I did use the Crazy About You stamp set to add JUST BE at the top in Memento black ink.

I'm off to work in the Soup Kitchen this morning...then out to my workshop to get ready for the weekend!  I hope you have a WONDERFUL day!  Thanks bunches for stopping by!

Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend.  Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.
