Not Quite As Quick As I Thought Bookmark!

It's been a while since I joined in with the Delicious Doodles challenges and again this is one that I knew exactly what to make when I saw the challenge theme:

3 Dimensional Project

So here is a bookmark! I know, not very exciting, but I do like making them (or maybe its just the laminating bit I actually enjoy!) and they always seem to go down well at Craft Fairs and the boys like them too!
This one uses a Delicious Doodles image that I've had for a fair while, and she's been coloured with Promarkers. I have snipped the hair pin bits off as they were a bit fiddly. I don't know where the paper came from as it was in my box of bits (see - I am trying to use it all up!) and I've folded it over so its double sided.

I used one of my Nesties for the shaping - simply drew around it and then cut it out. A bit of doodling and inking around the edges and then I laminated it all. The colour in reality is a lot closer to the backing paper, but at 6:15am this morning it was the only chance I got to take a photo!

The bookmark actually took a lot longer than I thought to make it - hunting through the box for the right bit of paper and then trying to make it look right as with straight sides, it just didn't work! And I got engrossed in an episode of MASH!!

  2. I love your Bookmark and the way you shaped the edges using a Nestie is inspired! I love watching Mash, I love the dry humour and I think the writing is very clever, I always end up getting sucked in especially when they have a Mash weekend!
