It's Technique Thursday, so I used a tutorial I found in Hetty's blog - thank you, Hetty!
You can use any patterned paper and any flat embellishments to decorate your bookmarks.Michael Strong's small stamps are perfect for decorating bookmarks, as well as other objects - they seem to fit everywhere!
Bookmarks are always useful (I read several books simultaneously), and a lovely addition to any gift, especially to books…
Basic Grey and Making Memories 6" x 6" patterned papers
Recycled cereal box (white and kraft) and leather textured CS (red) for stamping
Ranger Distress ink - gathered twigs
Inkssentials Ink Blending Tool
Michael Strong stamps - Cloisonné Fan (small), Cloisonné Dragonfly (small), Hetty's Coffee Cup (small)
Embossing powder - black and brown
VersaFine ink - Onyx Black
Purple Sharpie marker
You can find the Tutorial here. The steps are easy to follow, and there's also a video tutorial.For double sided CS, I used it as it is.
For patterned CS with a white back, I used Ranger Distress ink - gathered twigs to color the white part which can be seen after folding.
I folded the papers according to the instructions.I stamped Michael Strong's stamps - the Coffee Cup and the Dragonfly - using Emboss Ink, and heat embossed it using brown and black EP.
I stamped the Fan using VersaFine ink - Onyx Black.
I cut them all with scissors and glued each stamp on a folded bookmark.
Here's how the bookmark looks on a book.
