UnityStamps Laminated Bookmark “First love, First Hero”

Another quickie Bookmark featuring the Unity Stamp co stamp, “First love, first hero”.  Text was from an old paperback book hubby was throwing out… waste not want not lol. I stamped it up and colored it in distress marker, then inked the edges using distress ink pads. I mounted it on a piece of card, also colored in distress inks and then laminated it and punched a hole in it for a ribbon.   This is joining the growing Abandoned Art project bucket for our upcoming “mission”.

CAAB May Freebie “Daddy and Me” card

The minute I saw this image I knew exactly what I needed to do.  This image reminds me sooo much of my son in law and granddaughter… it just had to be a  vintage style soft card for my stepdaughter.

Don’t get me wrong, she loves the grungy, goth and steam punk stuff just as much as I do….. but I just felt this one needed to be more subtle.  It would be great for a Mother’s Day or Birthday Card….it would also be a great card for grandparents 🙂

It’s colored in a very sketchy, soft manner using  Zig Kurecolor, Chameleon and some distress inks and a dry brush technique.

  • Background was stamped and dry inked using a variety of stamps and Tim Holtz distress ink pads and SN Markers
  • Image is  printed on 110lb card and colored  with Zig Kurecolor and distress inks, and a touch of Marvy detailer for the hair and additional sketchy lines.
  • Butterflies are Playdoh.. yes I did indeed say PLAYDOH lol….   molded in silicon molds then  colored with SN alcohol Markers.
  • Cream Ribbon is from my stash, I pulled a few threads to gather it up a bit into a ruffle on the garland and added two Recollections pearl heart brads and a rose from my stash.
