TOMIC Challenge # 13 - Back to School + Metal....

Hello,

I hope you are all well and have had a brilliant weekend!

Today is the start of another challenge for TOMIC!

This week's theme is Back to School + Metal. Here is the bookmark I have made for this week's challenge.


I have coloured my Magnolia Tilda with distress ink pads.
I have layered my card with layers of metallic gold card. The word School are Tim Holtz Grungeboard letters. Which I have covered with crackle paint and distressed with walnut stain.
The large star is Quickutz as is the photo corner. The smaller stars are punched. 
I have added Star Dust stickle glue and Clear Sakura glitter pen.

Here is the back of my bookmark.


The rub on letters are Doodlebug.


The teeny sentiment is a Tim Holtz doodaa.

I am also entering my bookmark into Allsorts Challenge - Back to School

Thank you so much for visiting with me. 
A big thank you for all of your comments they mean so much to me and I really appreciate you taking the time to say hello!

love
