Another Bookmark

My daughter just loved the first bookmark I made her, so I decided to do a bunch more. Sorry for all of you who are looking for cards, but for the next while it will be a mix of both. It's part of my permanent art program to myself. I want pretty stuff for myself. So this little bookmark was made with a mix of Magnolia stamps and a beautiful Hanglar girl. I have this girl and some others through the effort and kindness of a wonderful lady from Sweden. I will show tomorrow the beautiful card she made. I am trying to not post everything at once so that I have something for most days this week.
recipe:
stamps: Hanglar & Stanglar, Magnolia
paper : Fabriano 140lbs Hot Press watercolor paper, Wintergreen DP, Soft Sky, Vellum cs
Ink : Stewart Superior Hybrid black ink, Ranger distress Tea dye and China blue
other : re-inkers, watercolor brushes, Spica glitter pens, Stickles, Cuttlebug swirl folder, corner rounder punch.
Everything is pretty easy to do, just a note though, The watercolor paper is amazing, trust me when I say that you get what you paid for. I never would have believed what a difference there is if i hadn't tried it for myself.

Love this!! Your coloring rocks...as usual!! It's too cute to use, but I guess you could put a protective sleeve over it.
