I wanted to make a little something special for my sister's birthday. Peg is a librarian so I thought it would be fun to make her a fun bookmark I have been seeing so many of lately and thought the pretty Rose from Just Inklined would be perfect for this project. What do you think?
I added a strip of lace and a narrow ribbon and bow which I glued on to insure it would not fall off. A band of pearls which I also glued on and then I stamped a cracked paint background stamp to go under the rose. I love the vintage look it gives or just to add some detail without getting too busy. Because it is a book mark I didn't want to add flowers or anything that would get too thick since it would be on the inside of a book, hopefully she will use it LOL.
Thanks for stopping by, and for those of my friends and followers who are on the east coast of the US please stay safe as Hurricane Irene bears down on you, and to everyone else, have a great week-end.
