Happy Sunday! Today I have a bookmark using a sneak peek from the new Stamp It Australia release from Crafter's Companion.
So, I simply colored them with my Spectrum Noir markers and cut them out! These tool images are crisp and open and lend themselves to coloring.
I used some paper from my stash that had a tone-on-tone gears design, rounded the edges with my corner punch and layered it on grey card stock with rounded corners. Then I simply adhered the tools in a vertical fashion. I snipped through the scissor blades to position the paint brush handle through them.
I added some alpha circles at the top to spell "READ"".
The final touch was to use my 1/4 inch circle punch to punch the ribbon hole at the center top. I selected various ribbons from my stash - a very broad grosgrain red, a measuring-tape twill, and a thin seam binding to tie it and to thread some beads through.
Here are the marker colors I used and a close up of the images. Fun and functional, I think he'll like it!
Don't forget to join in on the Crafter's Companion Scavenger Hunt Blog Hop that ends tonight at Midnight PST. There are fun prizes to win.
Till next week, Marge Dady
