My oldest son is now reading chapter books! So, I decided to make him his own personalized bookmark tag! He picked the image and the colors and I got to it!
It's Kenny K's "Cool Trucker" colored with Copics. I used my Silhouette to cut out my son's name and then I used embossing powder to help them stand out! I challenged myself to use some sparkle on a boy's card for the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge and I thought "metallic paint!" So, for a boyish effect, I splatted the paint over the tag. (Unfortunately, my mask didn't keep all the paint off the image! Note to self: add image last!)
I hope when my son opens his book to read later today, he'll love it when he sees this:
Here's a close up of my coloring! My son is not one who tans easily, so I tried not to make the image too tan!
It's very minimalist, but perfect for a bookmark! I hope you all like it! Thanks as always for looking and following along with me on this new, fun and fantastic addiction!
I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp and Show (Sparkle- metallic paint)
Simon Says Stamps (Emboss it- Tristan)
Dutch Dare (For a boy)
A and T Emerald Fairies (Tag it)
Kenny Ks Krafty Krew (Fruity- lots of red for strawberries)
