My Time to Craft - Quotes & Sayings


As this weeks challenge is Quotes & Sayings , I decided to make bookmarks which I could then use in a swap on the Lots To Do forum , so as the saying goes I was 'killing two birds with one stone', so to speak!!! I cut three pieces of card stock, then inked 3 Adirondack inks onto my craft mat & spritzed with water, the colours I used were Cranberry, Butterscotch & Stream, next I placed my bits of card onto the craft mat & when I had the desired effect I blasted them with my heat gun to dry off, I then stamped my saying onto them in black stazon ink, and repeated the procedure for the other side. I used my crop-o-dile to punch a hole & then fixed an eyelet in place, edged the bookmark with gold krylon pen & added ribbon - my bookmarks were complete. I really liked the mixture of colours & was quite pleased with the finished items.
