Peaceful bookmark

Another post for today, at least there's lots of variety here for you all to look at!

Here is a bookmark I made for my mom, and featuring a beautiful pussy willow image by Marks Finest Papers.

I airbrushed in light blue around the main image (by Marks Finest) in blue, as well as lightly coloured it with Copics, then added some sponging of Tim Holtz Distress ink (Linen) on the edges, added a fancy brad from SU that I'd had stashed away for about 2 years (too precious to use LOL!) and some SU ribbon for decoration.  The sentiment is from SU and was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black, my favorite ink to use for sentiments since it is so crisp.

My mom reads a lot and lives far away, so this is easy to mail and will make her think of me when she uses it, so I am really happy to have made it.

I'm entering this bookmark in the following challenges:


Marks Finest Papers, FOSTV Altered item/not a card
