New Bookmark for My Husband

My husband loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees to read books.  He will not use my Kindle and has to read via a book in his hand so I have made him a new bookmark.

I have used a Sheena Douglass stamp of this gorgeous dog.  It reminds me of our friend's new puppy that we saw last month.  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers.

For the shape of the card I have used a Sheena Douglass shaped tag and cut three layers:  a white layer in the middle and two patterned layers for the front and back to give it more stability.

I have used a sentiment banner from a set of Christmas stamp from Crafter's Companion and cut out the banner in purple, yellow and green to add some extra colour to the tag.

I have added some die-cut flowers which I have just put together with tacky glue to keep them flat, some die-cut greenery free from a magazine, added some Pinflair gold pearl wand to the centre of the flowers and some of the banners and added a tassel that I got from Joanna Sheen's store a number of years ago.

Now will my husband like his new bookmark?

The Promarkers that I have used are:

Face/skin - Saffron, Spice and Oatmeal
Dog - Cinnamon, Caramel, Tan, Cocoa, Ice Grey 2, Lavender, Orchid, Amethyst
Grass - Bright Green, Leaf Green, Moss and Olive Green
Sky - Powder Blue and Blue Pearl.

Your spouse and I are kindred souls. I have so many books on my Kindle tablet but my greatest joy comes from holding the actual book. Great bookmark! I am sure he will get great enjoyment from this gift! Thanks for sharing with us at 613 Avenue Create!
