Bookmark Challenge

This must be the week of firsts for me. My first card challenge and now my first ever bookmark and bookmark challenge. Over on Janis' pause dream enjoy blog, she has a bookmark challenge. You can go here:

and see what the other ladies have created. They all look awesome to me! My looks so simple compared to theirs but I made something I thought our 'almost' as she says, 9 yr. old Granddaughter would like 'cus I'm gonna give it to her. Hope ya'll like it. I'm kinda proud of it. I cut a piece of chipboard at 2 1/2X4 1/2 inches. I used versa mark and stamped a swirl design on the yellow paper and used Tim Holtz distress embossing powder in fired brick on it. Heated it and then brushed it off. You can barely see this in the picture though. Then I inked the edges in rich cocoa. Cut the word 'read' 3 times at 1 1/4 from Pooh Font and the 'books'  from My Community, 6 times at 1 inch. I stacked the letters and 3 books each on top of each other to give it dimension without having to use foam tape or pop dots. I inked all these pieces with the rich cocoa. Then I painted Glossy Accents all over the front. I used a piece of jute as the bookmark down the center of the books and used 3 different colors to make the tassel on the top.
Thank you for looking at my bookmark. :)

Good idea on stacking the images and adding different colors to the tassel. I could just see me playing with this in one hand while reading the book with the other. LOL Thank you so much for playing along!! :) Janis

Got your comment on my new challenge blog, Paper Playtime! Thanks! I hope you guys have a very fun weekend too. Please consider choosing a week to be a Paper Queen. I've got a chart for the rest of the year made. Just pick a week you want to provide the inspiration, and if it's available, I'll sign you up (and you can be Queen as often as you'd like). I've got the rest of the year's Challenge themes already planned, so whatever week you want, I'll give you the theme now and you'll have tons of time to create something fabulous (like you always do anyway). Oh, until then, I hop you'll do the last challenge on PauseDreamEnjoy - VACATION theme. :) Janis
