DT Magnolia - Edwin Bookmark...

Hello,

I hope you have had a good week and that you are well.

Here is a bookmark I made using some of the Magnolia mini's.



I have masked off a house from Magnolia's town house stamp and masked this cute mini Magnolia Edwin on his bike in front.

I have stamped my images with versafine onyx black onto 300gsm (140lbs) watercolour paper. I have coloured my images with distress ink pads. The clouds are from a Magnolia mini scene stamp. 

The Edwin name is punched out of a Tim Holtz letter sheet.

To make the bookmark more robust. I have covered the image and letters with Ultra Thick Embossing powder. I repeated this about 3 times.

Here is the back of the bookmark.


I embossed the Magnolia snail as well.

The stars are punched and I have added small gems in the middle.

The Magnolia paper has been distressed with Tim's distressing tool and then distressed with walnut stain.

The stickles I have added are silver. Before I embossed I also added clear sakura glitter pen to the house and clouds.

Thank you so very much for looking and for any comments you may leave I send you big hugs.

Have a most wondrous weekend!

love

Lovely job Kim. I can really see the size of the minis from your bookmark. They are really tiny. My eyes start to go a little haywire with the normal sized ones. lol

Hi Kim
It seems I've missed 3 of your posts whilst I was on holiday but it's great to see them now and all of them so beautiful! The You're so Special collection is the best overall so far, I think and your 'Wishing' card is just perfect. Seeing what you've achieved with the mini stamps makes me tempted for the first time to buy some!
Have a great weekend!
