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”.
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.
