The theme of the last Gingersnap Creations Art Exchange was: Travel The World Bookmarks with each bookmark being different and having a geographic theme. I truly enjoyed making them although using the sort of standard size of 1.5" x 7" and keeping it relatively flat posed quite a bit of a challenge.
First I printed the Dutch girl and the bicylce image (both from the Graphics Fairy) on white card, then I designed the background. The cloudy background is stamped with a Hero Arts stamp and Memento ink, the bottom part of the background inked with distress ink. I did some fuzzy cutting with the tulip image from Hero Arts and coloured it with distress ink. The finishing touch was the stamped word and stamp at the top.
A purely stamped bookmark in the tradition of the scene stamping technique using masks for the beachhuts and the Lady. The stampes are from Hero Arts for the clouds, Eline Pellinkhof for the post stripes and for the rest Crafty Individuals. For the colouring I used inks, Koh-i-noors and Copics.
All digital images (including the background) are from the Graphics Fairy. There is only little stamping on this bookmark with stamps from Clear Stamps.
The background is from Cemerony. The stamped images are from a stamp set from Crafty Individuals which I cut to size and mounted onto the background. The images are coloured with chalks and inks.
