Oddball Art Co. #395 Bookworm

My project today is a bookmark made with img*395 Bookworm.  What a perfect image for a bookmark and also a subtle "Not tonight Darling" sentiment to go with it.  I put the sentiment on the top of the bookmark for obvious reasons as you can see in my second photo.  I also laminated the bookmark to protect it a bit.  I have had a laminator and sleeves for years, hope they are OK and stay gripped.  To cut down the thickness I just used a coloured piece of paper, not cardboard, to cover my Copic colouring at the back. 

Oh, I forgot to mention, the grey shading around the owl is not a Copic, it is two shades of old eye shadow I have transferred from my makeup stash to my craft stash.  Just think of what I could have done with all that old makeup I threw out a couple of years back.  Not to worry, due to do it again, look out craft stash, there is more to add.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my bookmark and it inspires you to make one.  There are lots of great images to use in the Etsy shop and when you get there don't forget to use my exclusive discount code to get you another 10% of your order.
