Bookmark for a friend

Greetings - I am so glad to see you visit again.

This weeks release from McMahon Five includes this fabulous image called Blessings which begged to be made into a bookmark.

I printed onto some Curious Metallics Cryogen White paper which has a very 'discreet' sparkle to it, which shows through most colouring mediums.

The image background was painted with Lyric watercolour crayons, and the detail coloured with SU pencils.

The bumble bee was just such a sweet detail and I wanted to accent it, so the wings were painted with a silver paint and then I gave him some dimension by covering him with a dimensional glue.

The whole was mounted on a soft olive card, cream card and then some kraft after running some tea stain distress ink around the edge of the image.

A hole was punched and some cream and sparkling ribbon threaded through.

I am linking this to:

Thanks for visiting - may your day be blessed
