Hello, I've had a week off from blogging as I've been really busy on the return to work and so tired, plus my job is very physical and has aggravated an old injury gained in a car accident two year ago, so I've gone through gallons of radox and paracetamol trying to keep it under control. But it seems I may need to return to the Physio and start accupuncture again!
Anyway I've managed to do a little bit of crafting, I've been asked to make 6 bookmarks to be given as gifts so here is the first. I was inspired by "Passion For Promarkers Challenge - Patchwork" (but can't enter as i've not used me promarkers at all lol) and the "Alphabet Challenge - P for Pastels". The papers are Do crafts Eastern Promise and recycled book pages.
The butterfly is a "Penny Black Stamp", it was paper pieced with the text and then distressed with my crackle glaze. I've added some faux stitching with my white gel pen and embellished the bookmark with my buttons and gems.
The squares were cut with my square nesties, i have added a butterfly charm and some funky fibres to the bottom of the bookmark.
These are perfect for using up all the off cuts of card I have acquired when trimming down my a5 to square cards or "Scraplings" as i've recently discovered they're called in Craft Stamper Magazine.
