Wicked Bookmarks – Day 26
When thinking of an idea of what to do for today's entry I recalled a couple years ago doing some bookmarks on glossy paper for Halloween. If you haven't seen them they are on my Flickr site here: Halloween Bookmark
Without looking them up,, I thought I'd try something in that vein, or at least as I remembered them. I figured they'd be fresher if I didn't look them up first, so I wouldn't be influenced by what I'd done before. I actually did the skeleton one first. The main skeleton is from Tim Holtz, the skull is a stamp I had made from clip art years ago, the swirls are from A Stamp in the Hand and the stripes on the "floor" are another Tim Holtz stamp. The "Do Not Disturb" is from a stamp on a clear set I think is Anna Griffin and I finished the sentiment with my own handwriting.
The bookmark on the left is a Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers stamp – I love their stamps, especially the old-timey ones. We used to see them at conventions but haven't for years now, but I bet they are still online. The ticket stub is a Stampers Anonymous (can you tell I like their stamps?) and the swirls are an unidentified clear stamp set, probably Inkadinkado, but there's nothing on the set now so I can't tell. Most of the stippling is done with Marvy pads and the edging done with Colorbox Chalk pads.
Be sure to check out the blog roll at the right and visit all the other Wicked Bloggers who are participating in the 31 days of Halloween – if you haven't done so already... I'm at the bottom of the list, so perhaps you have already come down the line.... and if so, thanks for hanging in there and getting to me! I really appreciate all the comments and visits.
