Rainbow Book Pile Bookmark (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hello everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this Rainbow Book Pile Bookmark:o)

I made this bookmark for myself. :o)

To make this bookmark I was inspired with a card I made last year: Rainbow Books Birthday Card.

I used a book pile stamp from an adorable Jane's Doodles 'Read All About It' stamp set.

How I made my bookmark...

With some masking, I stamped the book pile on a watercolor paper and colored books in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. I used 19 different Distress Ink colors to color books' covers and DI Hickory Smoke for books' pages (see detailed supply list below).

After drying, I fussy cut the book pile and traced edges with black marker. I glued the book pile on a white cardstock paper and fussy cut the pile again, this time leaving white thin border around the pile.

Then I drew some white highlights on books with white pigment ink pen.

Lastly, I placed the book pile in a laminating pouch, fussy cut the pouch and laminated it. After couple seconds of cooling, my bookmark was finished. I LOVE it!!! :o)

Measurements: 34 mm x 124 mm
