ABAA -Bookmark







This is my entry for ABAA which this week is bookmarks.

I used my favourite colour purple. The camera doesnt seem to be picking up the centre colour which is a peachy lilac , which turned out lovely as i was only mixing inks. I stamped on my handsome man.... then continued to layer the card with various shades of purple till I had the right thickness.

I added the fibres and then stamped on the quote, which was when I got cross with myself.....I should have done that first as I didnt get it quite straight, so it looks a bit odd. Maybe people will be too busy looking at the man to notice, hehehe.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Gorgeous Jaqi! Love the purple and if you'd said the quote was deliberately slanted I might have believed you!! Thanks for being with us again.
