Technique Tuesday - Mark the Page

Hi Everyone
Sue Here

This week I am making presents for fellow crafters and friends.

Today is a bookmark.  This could be attached to a card by perforating the edge so that they can tear it off or make a pocket on the front of your card to place it in.

The technique today is resist but using promarkers/copics/spectrum noir pens and a blending pen.

Firstly stamp your images with versamark onto a smooth or glossy cardstock tag and cover with clear embossing powder and heat set. I used the Tim Holtz tag and bookplate die and Penny Black stamps of sunburst and concentrics





Then choose colours for your tag and colour it in.  Its doesn't matter at this stage if they don't blend.



Next take your blending pen and go over with the chunky side over the embossing and rubb off with a piece of kitchen towel.  The alcohol pen will bring the colour off and blend the colours together.  Add more if you wish.









The bookplate I have covered like the tag and added 2 x press studs.  I then added the ribbons and a saying fron Dylusions with WOW Ebony embossing powder and 2 metal charms.






Happy crafting this week
Sue
