Inkylicious Bookmark

Some years the spring holiday is wall to wall blue light winds all round very pleasant.     Not this year LOL.   It was necessary to pop to the shops today knowing it would be crowded and I was not disappointed gave town a miss but did need to get lunches for the rest of the week.

Came home and played, one or two pieces for future sharing are ready and then this bookmark.   Been quite a while since making one of these and it was fun to do.   Grunge Paper 3" wide and 5.5" long, just long enough for an on the edge die.  Before it was die cut Nick Bantock inks blended over the Grunge Paper on both sides.   After it was die cut stamped it down the center some of the image picked out with Crackle accents.   Some white lace coloured red with Glimmer Mist, some green organza ribbon and brown fiber each threaded with a glass bead and then through and eyelet set in the bottom of the book mark.
