How To Guide - Step 1

Cut TWO pieces of card 7 x 2", from the 7 x 5" white card. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Use the Banner tag punch on one end, of both pieces of card. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Punch a hole in the top of each Bookmark, with your hole punch. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Take ONE bookmark, and "swipe" the Izink Aurore Dye ink pad, randomly in different directions, using different pressures. 

Repeat this "swipe" technique, with the Izink Cerise ink pad, until you are happy with the effect. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Repeat this technique, on the second bookmark, using the Izink Mer Du Sud, and Emeraude ink pads.

Dry off the ink on both.  

How To Guide - Step 6

Repeat the "swipe" technique, on the REVERSE side of the Bookmarks. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Ink up one of the floral stamps, from the Heliotrope & Hibiscus Stamp and Die Collection, with the Onyx Black Versafine. 

Stamp it off the edge, of ONE of the bookmarks. I also reinked and stamped it coming off the top left corner. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Ink up the other floral stamp, from the same set, and stamp it coming off the edge of your SECOND bookmark. 

Again I reinked my stamp, and stamped it coming off the bottom right corner.  

How To Guide - Step 9

As Bookmarks are used on both sides, I chose to stamp the images on the REVERSE, but this is optional. You can leave them with just the inky backgrounds, if preferred.  

How To Guide - Step 10

Use a paintbrush to splatter the White Lace Thirsty Brush Confetti Paint, over your dried, stamped artwork. 

If splattering on both sides, ensure the paint is dry first, before turning the bookmarks over. 

How To Guide - Step 11

To finish, cut TWO lengths of twine, approx 6", and tie through the punched holes, on each of the bookmarks.

Alternatively you could tie ribbon, or lace, through them.
