Be Inspired by Reading Bookmark/Tag


I used a digital stamp from Smeared Ink to make this large tag/bookmark. This lovely lady is from the Specimen Jar Collection. Check it out...

I colored the image with colored pencils and blended with mineral spirits. The dress form is an empty pop can that I embossed with a spider web folder and then cut out with my sizzix machine. I painted the metal black and then went over it with a dry baby wipe to get the texture to show up. This is the first time I have used my sizzix for this type of crafting. The ideas are spinning now!

The tag is embellished with a metal word tag, a butterfly from my Dover collection and various ribbons and fibers.

I am entering this tag/bookmark in the following challenges:

Smudgy Antics - add metal
The Octopode Factory - literature related
Incy Wincy - book related
Paper Makeup Stamps - #98 color a digi
Cheerful Stamp Pad - #65 tag
