I think you are really going to like today's group of bookmarks. I know I do! It may be harder than I originally thought to let these go. I am really getting my creative flow going, now if I just could find a few more hours in each day.
For this set I decided to use transparencies in a way that some people may not have though of. I to show motion without bulk, as these are to be usable I wanted them to be able to lay flat. The technique I used for most of them was to stamp my image on the dictionary print covered bookmark and also on the transparency using Archival Ink. I carefully cut out my transparency image. Then on the back of the transparency I "colored" it in. That way the details are not disturbed and show through. I used a variety of mediums to create my desired effects. The girl on the book mark above was done with Stickles. I also stamped and cut out her face and body in Grunge Paper so I could place the wings behind her back. I attached everything with my favorite adhesive Glossy Accents!
The hand I inked with a variety of colors of Alcohol Inks. The hand is from the Tim Holtz SA Oddities Collection.
The bees, also from Tim Holtz SA Oddities, I colored in with some metallic paint. The photos don't do any of these bookmarks justice they are way cooler in person!
This one was done very similarly to the first. I used Stickles for her hat and wings and Grunge Paper for her body.
These butterflies I didn't color in the backs as I thought they were perfect as is. I simply used the Mini Attacher (tiny stapler) to put a staple through the center of their bodies and then attached them to the bookmark with Glossy Accents. I fluffed up their wings by giving them a slight bend where they attach to the body. Since the image is also printed on the book mark it gives the illusion of motion as you can see through their wings giving a flutter effect. Beautiful! You can find the butterflies in the Papillion collection by Tim Holtz.
