Enchanted - Quick bookmarks

 Hey everyone,

Today I'm sharing two bookmarks with you. No fancy techniques this time, even no coloring, just a little stamping to fill up my lunch break while I was working from home.

I must admit that I have been a little uncreative over the last month. Such more simple projects help me getting back to the crafting table. So if your muse went on vacation, this might be a way to get back into your creative flow.

Here's how I made the bookmarks:

I cut the two pieces of paper to a size of 7 x 2.5 inch and used a small corner chomper. For bookmarks I prefer having round corners. Then I stamped the goddess on one and the raven on the other tag, using Versafine Clair ink. The next stamp I used was the "enchanted" lettering along with a multi-colored embossing powder. This creates some nice interest on the bookmarks as it contrasts the other more neutral colors I used.

For a little visual texture I grabbed the lace background stamp as well as a writing stamp from the same plate. Fun fact: When I stamped the lace I was really dissatisfied with the look - lucky that changed once I added the other stamp over it.

I added some ink to the edges and some mettalic thread to the top and that's it.


Here are some more detail photos of the two bookmarks:
