Step 1: Cut Spectrum Noir Watercolour Cardstock to 2 3/16” x 7 1/8”. This is the size of the bookmark inserts.

Step 2: Using a waterproof ink, stamp your desired image and design onto the watercolor cardstock.

Step 3: When all stamping is complete, use Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens to color in the images on the bookmark. -- Picture of fourth step (Bookmark_4.jpg)—

Step 4: Blend your desired colors together using the brush tip of the Sparkle Pens.

Step 5: Alternatively, use a water brush to pull the color across the image for a shaded appearance with a less intense sparkle.

Step 6: Use any ribbon narrow enough to fit through the hole punch at the top of the plastic bookmark sleeve and cut it to you desired length.

Step 7: Trim the ends of the ribbon to tidy them and also get the desired length.

Step 8: Place new watercolor inserts into bookmark sleeves.
