SWEETPEA DT Inspiration

Today I wasn't sure what to make and not wanted to make a card I wondered what would suit this gorgeous stamp from Anna Marines Art Collection called SPIDERS WEB I have to add she is still one of my all time favourites from Anna.

Anna Marines Sheet 3, Plate170 or as a single stamp here.

Well I have to say I love note books and writing things down so I thought I'd have a go at a book mark.  I have in the past had a go at making a corner bookmark but then found I didn't have an images that work that well for me so it never got completed.

I have to admit my inspiration has come from one of my team member's Milo, I liked her bookmarks made using a Key lock.  Hence my inspiration point!

I also had another go at Watercolour last week and having gained a bit more experience I thought I'd have another go.  This time I kepted the open spaces white and regularly dipped my brush so that I could kept the light and dark ratio.

Hope you like this simply bookmark which has been weighted down with fairly heavy charms.


Medium: Water colouring pencils, Glitter, Sakura silver glitter pen, Ink pad for distressing
Papers:   Water colour paper, Cardstock
Dies used:    Spellbinders
Embellishments:    Faux material brads, Ribbons and bows, Flat back pearls, Ladybug Charms

The charms were from Ladybug Crafts and are weighty charms so they add they weight to make this bookmark work.  Here is a link for anyone interested here.  And of course there are plenty of other great things to look at.  I've just purchased a glue gun which I hope to be using shortly as one of my purchases.

Bookmark is taken against my Diary.
