Seaside Bookmark

Thursday, May 30, 2013

I wanted to CASE one more of Christine's creations for the Flourishes Friday Focus CASE Challenge, and the deadline is looming, so I'll be quick. ;)

Check out this great masculine bookmark Christine made using the What A Catch stamp set. Her coloring on that image is amazing, isn't it! I don't have that stamp set, or any other fishing stamps, but I do have the A Guiding Light stamp set, that has some fab masculine images. I colored the lighthouse image with Copics and added a little glimmer to the sand and water with a Spica pen. After distressing everything (you know I can't make something without at least a little distressing!), I used her general layout to put it all together. I had to raid my DD's shell collection for the little seashell at the top of the bookmark. :)

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Flourishes Friday Focus CASE Challenge: Case Christine
ColourQ Case Challenge #191
Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes
