Welcome to my blog. Over the years that I have been stamping and paper crafting, I have so often been inspired by the ideas on other sites and blogs. I hope I can pay that back in some measure with my own. (In between laughs -- or cackles as my son calls it!)

Watercolored Bookmarks

To make these bookmarks, I first covered a large sheet of watercolor paper in a rainbow wash.  Rock salt was thrown on to the paper while it was still wet, for interesting texture.  Then I cut bookmark-size strips, approximately 7 x 2.5 inches, give or take depending on the stamp I chose.

I used a variety of stamps -- in black embossing powder and one in white embossing powder.  The butterflies were stamped on coordinating patterned papers and fussy cut and adhered.  All the other bookmarks use only one stamp.  This made these a very quick and easy project.

All were matted on either black or white card stock and coordinating ribbons added.
