Evening everyone I know I must have the bloggers bug as this is my second post this evening.I made this bookmark to enter into a challenge but more importantly to give to a new friend of mine.She will probably see it on here but she Wont think its for her so sorry I can't reveal who this actually belongs to yet but all will be revealled once she recieves it.
Well on Saturday I recieved my candy prize from Sweetpea stamps and I love it so thankyou so much Lynette I am so pleased with them.It even came with the beautiful quote which I have stamped and embossed in gold on the back of the bookmark.
I started by stamping the images onto acetate,run them through an xyron and then gently laying a sheet of gold leaf over the top i used a paint brush to smooth it out layered them onto black and gold card and glued to my bookmark.On the back aswell as the quote I also got a swirl stamp and went around the edges with a clear ink and then embossed with gold poweder.
I hope my friend will like it as its the first time I have tried this technique but I think it looks ok.
The challenges I am entering this little one into are:
Sir Stampalot-Butterflies and Blossoms
One Stop Crafts-Anything but a card(bookmark)
Papertake weekly-Something different(gold leaf)
Take care everyone and I hope you all had a nice long weekend.
