Dance in the rain!

Hello my crafty friends!

One of the things I enjoy doing while not crafting is reading books! I used to be a proper bookworm, however it’s been some years now that I don’t read as much. I haven’t found a book that I can’t put down. (Feel free to suggest some if you have any in mind!)…Anyway, I always used to like special bookmarks, especially those with quotes!So this time I decided to share with you one I’ve just made! It’s simple, but I think it’s super cute! Don’t you think? 🙂

Quick Instructions:

This bookmark was really simple to make. I used Distress inks to create the sky (and splashed some water to create the watercolor effect) and Copics to color the rain puddle.Then I used a white gel pen to add the raindrops. I stamped the bird on white cardstock and I used Tombow markers to color it. I adhered it on the bookmark with double sided tape. I used a fineliner to outline the image and write the sentiment. The two fonts I used for the sentiment are from an old set of rulers that have alphabet stencils. To finish my bookmark off I punched a hole and used some twine (just so it is still visible from the top of the book).Hope you like it!

Supplies used:

  • Kraft Cardstock paper – white
  • Paper smooches :Chubby Chums stamp set
  • Archival Ink Jet Black
  • Tombow Dual Brush Pen: 055 Process yellow. 985 Chrome yellow
  • Ranger – Mini Distress Ink pads: Tumbled glass, Faded jeans
  • Copics:  B02, B05,B12
  • Ranger – Mini Ink Blending tool
  • Alphabet stencil rulers (I think they are Helix,but not totally sure)
  • White gel pen
  • Black fineliner
  • Watercolor brush
  • Double sided tape
  • Hole puncher
  • Twine
