Bookmark for Penny’s Challenges week #6 and Tuesday Taggers…

Penny’s challenge over at Penny’s Challenges week#6 was a Sketch challenge. I decided to make a bookmark  using some leftover corrugated cardboard I had in some packing. I have seen some neat stuff done with this and wanted to have a try.  I ended up with some extra so I made a little card too but I will post that one tomorrow as my lion needs some work. I found some raffia (right word?) and sewed it on the bookmark as it reminded me of the African Savannah grass.  All in all I kind of like it! Also Tuesday Taggers is having a bookmark challenge so I thought I would enter it in their challenge.

Supplies : Cardboard, Tim Holz Distress inks, Various SS CTMH (interpret that as I am too lazy to walk downstairs and look ha ha) CTMH colored Pencils, Cardstock CTMH, some string I found in a drawer.

Hope you like.

THANKS!!!!! for all the WONDERFUL comments on my Halloween box…I was sooo happy you all liked it.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

Enjoy!

What a gorgeous bookmark! I'd offer to buy it from you (I love clever bookmarks), but I think the carbon required to get it to me would defeat the purpose of a marvelous recycling effort :-)

Nicely done.
