Dreamer Handmade Bookmark

It is time for another one of Mo's Digital Challenges. This week the theme is "Anything BUT A Card!!" I decided to make a bookmark for my granddaughter. She will soon be starting 3rd grade and loves to read.

This is how I made this bookmark;
(1.) I started with a blank cream-colored book mark (with tassel) from The Paper Company. The bookmark measures 2 1/4" by 6". I lightly sponged some "Old Paper ~ Tim Holtz" distress ink around the edges of the bookmark.

(2.) I used blue/beige dotted patterned paper as the background. I used a Martha Stewart punch to make the loops in the top.

(3.) I used the digital image "They Grow So Fast " from Mo's Digital Pencil Shop. This is a cute image of Jack and the Beanstalk. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and markers. I sponged some "Tumbled Glass ~ Tim Holtz" distress ink on the background to look like the sky.

(4.) I embellished the card with the "Dreamer" and butterfly stickers from K and Co.

This project was fun to make. I hope it inspires my granddaughter to be a SUPER reader in school this year.
