Bookmark

Bookmarks, what a super challenge theme. I love reading and so do alot of my friends, so I will be definately add this idea  to my makes list,  to add to gifts this year.
 For the bookmark's background I used a numbers mask, coloured with mustard seed and barn door distress inks. Added a scrap from an old school french  dictionary page.
I just love this little Stampotique charactor, those teeth and that grin  are the reason I bought this stamp. He is coloured with cosmic shimmer  watercolour paints.
The  Star stamp came free with my Craft Stamper magazine, wow a Jo Capper-Sanderson stamp for free.  This was  stamped onto red paper before cuting out.
The tassle should hang nicely over the page, it is gathered up a bit for the photo.

 The Stampotique Designers Challenge SDC37    is to make a Bookmark.
and
Gingersnap Creations GC 116- Colour Challenge is to use Primary Colours.

So this little ray of sunshine will be making his appearance  at both these challenges.

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.
