Imagination Bookmarks

I usually have a couple of books going at the same time, so I need more than one bookmark.

I made a couple more bookmarks today. Using Tim Holtz's book Compendium of Curiosities. The technique I used is on page 59. Which happens to be the Challenge this past week over at the lovely Linda's blog. (Coincidence? Hardly. It's why I used this particular technique on these bookmarks.)

I used a new (to me) set of Tim stamps.


For the one on the left, I stamped the bird on white cardstock and then masked it for the rest of the stamping.

For the one on the right, I created the background with watercolor paints, then masked it for the rest of the stamping.

I like them both.
And they're flat.
So that makes me VERY happy.
