My Time to Craft #330 Anything but a Card

Hello, my lovelies, I hope you're having a good weekend!

It's My Time to Craft Saturday again! Our Challenge is Anything BUT a Card -go and see the fabulous creations my teamies have made to give you some great ideas! (It's a Challenge I always have to think about for a long time, making a card is my default setting!)

I have been playing with Distress Inks and watercolour paper, using Tim Holtz's Wrinkle free Distress technique. (The link is to a Youtube video.) I then made bookmarks, since at the time I was using an old envelope as a bookmark which was a bit naff!

I die-cut the watercolour paper with the second largest of the Lil' Inkers Pinking Edge Sentiment Flag die, and also from pearlescent cardstock using the largest of the dies.

I stamped the images with Ranger Black Archival Ink: the butterflies were magazine freebies, and the vine is from Butterfly Flourish Swirls by Chocolate Baroque. I made a hole protector with a small circle die, glued it to the top, then punched through both layers with my Crop-a-Dile. A bit of baker's twine from stash, and they were done!

And, yes, all 4 are in use, blue for hubby and pink for me!!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

I love your bookmarks, Mags - the colours and images are all gorgeous. I could do with making one for myself - sticking a bit of paper into the place just doesn't have the same effect...!!!

Wonderful book marks, had to laugh when you said both were in use. I use bits of paper sometimes too.

Awww how romantic that you both have matching bookmarks ;)
I've a couple of bookmarks that I made but usually end up using my bus ticket as my marker!
