Welcome to new challenge day at Less is More. And once again it's the turn of our One Layer challenge. And our theme for you this week is...
Books / Literature
I'll admit, this one stumped me this week, so just one sample for you this time. And as it's a one layer challenge I decided to make a bookmark...
I started by die cutting a piece of white cardstock using a fishtail flag die. Next I stamped the bookworm, masked him to stamp the bookshelf, and with the masks still in place I stamped the text background. I wanted a faded look to the text so once the stamp was inked up in grey I blotted slightly with a paper towel before stamping. I coloured the bookworm and bookshelf with ProMarkers and Flexmarkers. The sentiment flag was stamped in turquoise flush with the edge. I fixed an olive green eyelet to the top to co-ordinate with the worm and threaded some red ribbon through it. For a finishing touch I added some Glossy Accents to the worm's glasses.
