Tilda on a Bookmark


Hello everyone, well I have finally got around to making something and for once it is something for me!!! I have been meaning to make a book mark for ages and I have finally got around to doing so. I'm entering it into this weeks Simon Says Challenge where the theme is anything but a card, Stamp Something which has a theme of summer vacation and Secret Crafter Challenge 45 where the theme is fancy corners.


For my bookmark I have used the very cute Tilda with Ice Cream and it is available to buy from Magnolia. I have coloured her with distress inks and added some stickles to the top of her lolly! The papers are from K & Co and the ribbon and jewel from my stash. I kept wanting to add extra embellies, but then realized they would get crushed in a book so I kept it simple...and flat!!!


How it fits the challenges.... its a bookmark so it obvious for Simon Says, the summer vacation theme of Stamp Something is covered by the stamp, summery colours and also I love to read in my free time and finally for the fancy corners theme of Secret Crafter.... well I have rounded off my corners, but I realize that this could be pushing it so I understand if it doesn't count!!!



Finally, a close up..... looks a bit of an odd angle......sorry! lol!!!
