Glimmer Bookmark


I am currently doing an online class using all sorts of glimmer mists and glazes etc, and when I had some Perfect Pearls in Kiwi left on my work surface, I could not bear to waste it, so wiped this tag through it.  I then sprayed it with Perfect Pearls Mist, Perfect Red.

It then sat on my desk for some days, until I decided I wanted to make a tag style bookmark to go in a card I was making this afternoon.

I printed out the verse from Word Art Wednesday for this weeks challenge, die cut it with a S/B die Labels Three.  I sponged it with Tea Die D.I. and the Delicata Gold ink before removing the die. 

After adhering the scripture panel, I then added some green, leaf shaped, ribbon that I got as a sample from Really Reasonable Ribbon in an order I received from them. 
The final details were some tiny flowers I punched from pink sparkling card.  
I did not want any gems or pearls on this as they could damage a book.  
To form a 'tail' on the bookmark I added some hand died hem binding.

I am linking this to:

The sand colors with the dusty rose and green is so soft and it seems soothing somehow. It is such a pretty tag. Thank you for posting this wonderful art with us today at Word Art Wednesday. Have a Happy and BLESSED 2015, Carole
We are inundated with the heaviest snow ( it weighs a ton) from yesterday and now a day of freezing rain. The furnace is broken at the church.

Beautiful tag and such a lovely sentiment! You're going to have to teach me what to do with the Perfect Pearls. I have two little jars and don't know what to do with them at all!

What a beautiful book mark!!! Love how you sponged the color around the scripture. I got some new scrapbook storage furniture for Christmas and as I'm rearranging everything, I found several little jars of perfect pearls that had never been opened. I can't even remember when I purchased them LOL. Seeing your bookmark is inspiring me to play around with them on some type of embellishment for a scrapbook page.
