(2015 c51) Unity Reading is the Ticket to Success

Reading is the TICKET to SUCCESS!  I used Unity Stamps from KOM Spread Your Wings {5/15} for the girl and for the leaf I used Marks Finest Papers leaf stamp from Autumn Glory.



I love making bookmarks and laminating them for my grandkids!  This one started with a piece of watercolor paper which I colored with colors to match the Color 31 Be Inspired Challenge at Unity Stamps. Then I stamped the girl image on Tissue Paper (I love this tissue paper technique!)  and then colored on the back side with Copics Markers. Next I tore her out very close to the inked edges and applied to the paper with GOLDEN Soft Gel Matte Medium from Michalel’s. The little definition at the top was applied in the same manner using  tissue text by Tim Holtz called Melange.  The leaf was heat embossed on white cardstock and colored by sponging Distress inks and then fussy cut & applied to the  bookmark.  T
