Just Read - bookmark

I really enjoyed creating this bookmark - I love the reduced pressure you are under when making a bookmark. It seems ridiculous to talk about pressure when making art is supposed to be an enjoyable, relaxing hobby to have but when making a stand alone piece of art, it is so easy just to throw it away if you are not happy, as opposed to making a journal page in a treasured journal!
Anyway, I started by painting a pink background with acrylic paint and stamping through various stencils to give interest. I embossed the clusters of little circles with a silver powder, they look really shiny in real life.
I adhered some blue tissue paper in places. Using a separate piece of card I coloured in the Stampotique Prom Queen with a Derwent Inktense blue pencil, plus some glitter on her hair and boots and she was done. I then had to meticulously cut her out - plus the hair!!
I have just now received a Stamp Platform and so will play around with techniques so I can stamp straight onto my intended card, hopefully using this device will help me get a perfect stamp imprint without all the fussy cutting.
