Twilight Bookmark


I told the Columbus Book Markers that I would make us all bookmarks for Twilight since everyone loved loved loved the book…I’ve been procrastinating, or should I say I’ve been busy with other challenges? Luckily TGIF came to my rescue with their theme for today…the perfect excuse to get my behind in gear…

They challenged us to…So, this weeks challenge is all about Ribbons ! Please create a card (or whatever you would like to prepare with ribbons) by using minimum one stamp and Ribbons - just how much, how colorful, how long or short you want. We appreciate your creations as always…!!!
This week
Elena has been our guest-designer - she crafted such a beautiful card - thanks so much for that, dear Elena. You can see more of her gorgeous art work on her blog, so don´t hesitate to visit her… !

I started by copying the cover of Twilight and printing it out on my computer. I then cut away everything but the hands holding the apple. The book print, not from the Book we read…I would never rip anything out of Twilight LOL, is died red using Tim Holtz distressing inks. Everything is mounted on a double sided tape the areas not covered with the paper and covered in black glitter. As a finishing touch I added the satin black ribbon.

I hope the members of CBM like the bookmark.
Thanks for looking…you should read the book!

That's a really stylish bookmark! The cracked glass technique is soooo easy - which is probably why I enjoyed it so much... do have a go, it looks and feels gorgeous... shiny and very tactile! Trish is wonderful at backgrounds and I've learnt so much from her!
