Spooky Bookmarks

Hi Everyone,
I'm up on the Blank Page Muse blog today with a little something to keep your page when your book gets too scary to read at night!

Stamp your bookmark(the bookmark is a Ken Oliver Watercolor bookmark) with your Ashes of Ex-Lovers BottleMummy Ribs Bottle, and Powdered Cobwebs Pot.  Using your permanent inks, stamp each bottle in a different color and at various angles to create interest. 

Once the inks are dry use Distress ink in Carved Pumpkin and Black Soot to cover the entire bookmark.

 Layer your bookmark onto various colors of cardstock. 
Punch a hole in the top of the bookmark.  Add your die cut Halloween Side Order skeleton images, Halloween Script Words, and your sari ribbon.

For the second bookmark the paper layering will be the same.  Using the permanent ink stamp your Oct. 31 and Spider from the Halloween Bingo Set.  Add in the tiny 31 to fill in the gaps.

  Once your ink is dry create your background.  Cover the entire bookmark using Shaded Lilac Distress Ink.  On your craft mat smoosh on the other two purple shades (Dusty Concord and Wilted Violet)  and spritz with water.  After your have sprayed your water tap your bookmark in the color.  Be sure you only tap it in a couple times.  If you just rub it around you won't get speckles and splats.  Look at your bookmark and see if you like the patterns that are appearing.  If you do, stop and dry your layer.  Once the layer is dry then you can go back and tap into the ink again.  Drying between layers makes a huge difference.

Add on your Frankenstein die cut image.   

Spray your sari ribbon, with Dylusions Lime and Distress Walnut Stain, and dry it.  Add the ribbon to the top of the bookmark.
I hope you're inspired to create some on your own.  They are easy and fun to make!
Happy Crafting,
