Check back for details on Rubbernecker Blog Candy
and Treasure Hunt Tuesday!

The bookmarks measure approximately 2 1/4" x 7" finished size. I started out with Shipping tags that measure 4 /34" x 2 3/8", stamped the Spirit of winter, spring, Summer & Autumn using a Stamp a Ma Jig and then trimmed them down. Cardstock is all SU! and the colors besides black for the base are: Winter/Bordering Blue, Not Quite Navy & Bashful Blue. Spring/Old Olive, Garden Green & Certainly Celery. Summer/Rose Red, Bravo Burgandy & Pretty in Pink. Autumn/Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust& Blush Blossom.
The images were colored with Tim Holtz Distress inks using sponges and cotton swabs.
I also supplemented the coloring with copic markers for highlights and a white gel pen. Stick on Gems were added to the sesson symbols at the top, eyelets and charms at the bottom.
The sentiments are all available from Rubbernecker Stamp Company in the Stamp Oasis section.
Stamps include: Spirit of Winter 483SO
Spring 480SO Summer 481SO & Autumn 482SO. Petite Word Set (10) 2000SO,
French Letter 11SO GM & Music Background 543SO.
