Follow Your Butterflies Mixed Media Bookmarks

Hi everyone. Nicole here with two gorgeous mixed media bookmarks I created using the TCW2209 Beautiful Sentiments Stamp and TCW2203 Missing You Stamp set.

Disclaimer: “The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.”

To begin, I used my Sizzix and metal bookmark dies to make the bookmarks.

Next, I applied acrylic paint to my Gel Press gel plate using a palette knife and then used a brayer to smooth out the paint onto the plate. A little paint goes a long way. I added less paint so that I could control the paint better for a more distressed look. Then, I placed the bookmark down over the paint and used a brayer to add pressure to the plate. I repeated this step with the blue, green and orange acrylic paint, one-by-one.

Once I was satisfied with the background, I grabbed the TCW2209 Beautiful Sentiments Stamp and TCW2203 Missing You Stamp set and stamped the images onto the bookmarks using black ink.

To make the images pop even more, I colored them in using alcohol markers. EEEK, I love this color scheme so much!

I really wanted to add some gems…but was afraid the gems would ruin the book pages…so I left them off so that the bookmark is completely flat.

These butterflies make me so happy. Aren’t they beautiful? Thank you so much for stopping by today!
