You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend. -Paul Sweeney
It's Day three of Elzybells April Sneak peeks, I am loving all the super cute Teddy Bears Elizabeth drew for us this time around...so fun to color and play with.
When I first stamped this image and started coloring I had every intention of making a card, but then I was looking at it and it made me think of reading, I don't know why...maybe because I am half way thru Book 7 of the Harry Potter series and I truly believe the quote above, I am getting a little depressed that when I am done with this book I am Done. :( Whatever it was, I just decided to change my tack completely and turned the image into a book mark...
I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS, added some Stardust Stickles to the balloon and then hand lettered the sentiment along the side. I layered the image on Pure Poppy CS and then with Bella Blvd Easter Grass patterned paper. After the stickles were dry I laminated the whole thing with the sticky lamination paper and then added an eyelet. The tassel is handmade with Embroidery Floss...my first, please be kind! ;)
