Distress Stickle Bookmarks

Pin It!

 I created this set of bookmarks using the fabulous Distress Stickles as my main coloring medium.  After stamping my images with Archival Ink I softly inking the bookmark with Distress Inks.  I then used a variety of colors of Distress Stickles to "paint" my images.  I was able to achieve shading, depth and texture by using a couple of shades of the same color.   Love the effect that it gave.  Especially on the pine cones and the fall leaves.

I didn't know there were distress stickles too oh dear so many products I want to use so little money and space to store them all. Hubby is so far patient about me taking the whole of the spare bedroom, though I have still got a bed in there should we need it for visitors I don;t know where I would put everything that is on it.;-)
I love your work and thanks for the inspiration.

I love all your work. It is impossible to pick a fav. I have to say the post card book dances with beauty. I must be a copycat and try it. You are a artist and a muse. what a gift.
