Peacock feather bookmarks

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here are 36 bookmarks I made at the request of my mum who was visiting from India. She wanted to use them as give aways to friends. I have used glossy accents on most of them which I have to add made them look rather nice. The image was stamped first and a metallic gel pen was used to go over it. Glitter glue was used on some of them in the centre of the feather to add dimension. I used glossy accents to seal the metallic gel pens since their shine reduces after a while.

For the base card, I had these rectangular cards lying with me which were the extra trimmings from a larger piece of card stock I had bought in Mumbai some 14 years ago. Talk of hoarding!!! Anyway, my little bit of recycling for the day. The gold ribbon is from my stash. And that is my story. All in all a very lovely experience because I love peacock feathers so.

I will enter my card in the following challenges:

Happy everything,

Thank you, dear Shirley-Anne

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is a quick card I made with the sweet embellies that Shirley-Anne sent me in the mail. Thank you so much, dear blog buddie. I am grateful for all the support I have received from blog land in the past and present. Coming back to the card, I finished it off with washi tape, my inseparable buddy and a Happy Birthday stamp.

I will participate in the following challenges:
