* Vera Lane Studio: Rainbow Girl Bookmark


At the Vera Lane Studio Facebook Group our monthly swap is a bookmark swap with the theme 'Let's Hear It For the Girls'. 
Here is the bookmark I made:

I coloured one of the Rainbow Girls with Copics and added some white Posca paint pen highlights. I fussy cut around her leaving a narrow white border. I cut some 300 gsm smooth white card to 6.5cm x 15 cm and blended Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed and Crushed Olive Distress Ink over the surface. Once I was happy with the blending, I splattered a few water droplets to bleach out some colour and add a little texture. I then used the same inks, and a little black ink, to add stamping around the edges. I added some torn washi tape to ground my Rainbow girl and glued her directly to the background.
I printed the Dr Seuss quote using the Vera Lane Studio Baby Powder Font. I then cut the sentiment into strips, inked the edges in black and glued them directly onto the background. The edges of the bookmark were inked with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink and the bookmark was matted onto black card stock to make it a little sturdier. A hole was punched at the top of my bookmark and some hand-dyed seam binding threaded through.
