Crazy Flowers Bookmarks #2

I hope you all had a great Christmas whether you celebrate or not it's always good 
to take a break and recharge those batteries even if for just a moment.

The past week has been non stop with various events for me and my family
with today being the first day to actually relax and treat myself to a Pj day
before the festivities start all over again.

Here's two more book marks made and given as gifts
which I can now share with you all.


Just like before in a previous post HERE I stamped onto Calico but this time using 
both Crazy Flowers #1 and #2 designed by Melina Dahl from Rubber Dance Stamps.
Marking with a thermo-sensitive pen the width of the bookmarks.


Colouring with inktense pencils the ink was activated with sparkler sprays.
Interfacing and lace backing was sewn onto the bookmark then heat fixed with an iron.
Setacolour Glitter paint was painted on adding extra sparkle.


Ribbon crimps and wire wrapped gems personalised the bookmarks.


I really enjoyed creating these and know they were gratefully received by the book lovers.
I'm looking forward to creating a few more in the New Year.

Time to make the most of some quiet time for me now..
Have fun everyone & Stay Safe

Creative Hugs
Tracey xx

I'd like to enter this into the Rubber Dance December Challenge

Christmas is a beautiful time to take in and appreciate all that is good and be Thankful for all but it can be very tiring.

Wow Tracey, these are stunning, the colours look so vibrant! I sure your bookworms loved these xx

Tracey@Hotchpotchcreations said...

Thank you Susanne, it's a wonderful feeling to see a creation so loved and so useful. We make so many things that it is such a shame to not create at least a handful that can be used each and every day xx

Tracey@Hotchpotchcreations said...

Thank you Sue, the colours seemed to fit the colour scheme perfectly and with the added glitter paint.. I adore these stamp sets xx
