Well, I didn't plan to do two reading themed items this month for them, but it happened. I'm a huge reader. It's not often that I am not in the middle of a book. Any reader will tell you that they always need bookmarks. Yes, I've used napkins, receipts, post it notes, and other random bits of paper to mark my pages. I wanted to make a little something nice to actually mark my page.
I covered one of the Extra Large Chipboard Tags using vintage card catalog cards. The edges were embossed using Emerald Creek's Salted Raven just to add a little bit extra.
I painted my Medium Circle Border using Distress Paints in Picked Raspberry, Fossilized Amber, Wild Honey, Black Soot, and Spiced Marmalade and glued it on my tag.
I added the vintage image and verbiage using foam tape. Since the circles make the background uneven I used different layers of tape to make the image flush.
I am super excited to share my first post for The Blank Page Muse Rubber Stamp Company! Our theme this month is Turquoise, Silver, and Sparkle. Here's what I came up with for you.
I started by using an image from the A Wing Above the Rest Stamp Set. This little beauty comes with some wings already, but I wanted to add a little more. Once I stamped my image I just trimmed off the wings.
I colored the Image using Distress Crayons and a waterbrush.
The chipboard wings were painted a shimmery turquoise and then embossed.
Happy New Year from this party animal!
If you made it until midnight, then you stayed up later than me. I never make it until midnight. I have a little project for you today that shows you that I really know how to party.
