Bookmarks worth Reading For

Hi again friends! It's Rachel Winn here! Kindred Stamps hosted a make and take table at the Simon Says Create Event that happened March 15th & 16th (it was sold out, woah!) I was able to assist Audra in planning out our table's projects. We decided to use the especially popular, Little Town Life stamp set to make bookmarks.
I started by using the princess and stamping her out with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Next, I stamped her little friends using Gray Flannel Memento ink, I wanted them a little angled rather than stamped straight on. I then stamped the sentiment "choose your own adventure" in Catherine Pooler Tiara ink.
Then it was time to color! For her skin, I used Copic E13, E11, and E00. The dress is Y19, Y13, and Y11, the overlay, I used just Y11 and added a layer of Clear Wink of Stella for some sparkle. Her hair is E79, E57, and E23. I finished her with RV29 for the rose petals and YG67 for the leaf!  
I chose a pink ribbon that matched the rose to finish my bookmark. Now you've got the chance to make your own bookmark! Go grab Little Town Life and have some fun! I am excited to see your take on this project... want a bonus?
I decided to make one more bookmark, this one using the beastly prince from this set! I didn't keep track of the colors because I didn't have to pass them along for the project. For his fur, I varied several shades from the earth tone collection so it didn't all blend together. 
I began by stamping him with black Memento, then chose to use Catherine Pooler inks that fit with the character for the little friends. The feather duster was stamped in the same gray Memento from the first book mark. The sentiment "you're my favorite guy" was stamped in red VersaFine. The bookmark was finished off with a red ribbon with dots on it.
I hope that you've enjoyed my bookmarks, I have a special home for them in mind. I really hope you try to make some for yourself or someone you love. To see more of my projects, follow my blog or on follow me on Instagram.
Thank you,
R. Winn
