Flourished Face

Lots of things and a bookmark to talk about too. First off, it's Treasure Hunt Tuesday at Rubbernecker Stamp Co. Visit the home page for the first clue and then go on your hunt. There will be a treasure to add to your shopping cart when you find it. Have fun!

There is also Blog Candy to be given away by Sherry and Linda today. We are also celebrating as a Design Team because Linda Duke has agreed to stay on as a member of our Design Team family after her Guest spot. Congratulations and Welcome Linda!!!!!

My bookmark measures 3 1/8" x 6" Images and supplies are all available from Rubbernecker Stamp co. The face & flourish were stamped in Stazon Jet Black, the keys, Art & imagination in Stazon Timber Brown. The solid diamond, script and sponging were all done with distress inks because they stay wet longer and blend well when misted. I used a Sakura gold stardust gel pen to highlight the keys na flourish. The eye and keys were also filled in with copic markers. Edges were scraped with a toothbrush inked with Versafine Vintage Sepia. I like using versafine ink for this because it is a pigment oil based ink that works well for the distressed scratchy look I like on the edges. Fibers are BasicGrey & May Arts, the chain and baubles are part of an old piece of jewelry and I added a key charm to the end. The tag was misted with Perfect Pearls (pearl color) mixed with water for a nice shimmer. I did iron the tag flat before attaching the fibers.
