Crazy Flower Fabric Bookmark #1

Happy Sunday everyone, I hope you have had a peaceful one.

After a weekend with the family I managed to steal away a few hours to finish off 
a little project I started last week in between Christmas card and gift making
using stamps Newly Designed Rubber Dance Stamps by Melina Dahl.

Here is my Handmade Fabric Bookmark and How to do's..

On to Calico I stamped the Tulip shaped flower with Archival 
ink and used the backing from the newly mounted rubber stamps 
as a mask so I could over lay the flower head design.


When my design was stamped I added colour using Inktense Pencils
activating the ink by running a steam iron over it, spritzing occasionally.


I drew a 2" strip around the design with an erasable pen.


Sandwiching interfacing between another piece of calico I have machine 
sewn around those pen lines three times and cut the strip neatly out.

Pebeo Setacolour gold and white paints have been added to emphasize 
part of the design and Setacolour Glitter paint adds the glitz.


Attaching ribbon crimps to each end of the bookmark along with beads gives the 
balance needed to keep the bookmark in place and adds those final embellishments.

 My Handmade Bookmark is complete.


Thank you to Melina, these stamps are wonderful.

Looking forward to playing around with the rest of the set and 
Crazy Flowers #2 very soon.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Warm Hugs 
Tracey xx

  1. Yes the stamps are wonderful Tracey, and so is your book mark. Beautiful created on the calico, and with the lovely glitter paints, it looks so gorgeous. Also I love the pearls added in every end of it, to make it hang between the pages.
    Very, very wonderful, dear.
    Hope your Sunday has been great.
    Hugs, Dorthe, xx
