It started it's life an anonymous tile in a place mat .....then it escaped



It started off as one of the above - a little bamboo tile which was one of a hundred or so that make up a placemat - which you can buy from The Artistic Stamper

Then, with fine sandpaper, alcohol inks, pva glue, a rubber stamp, and black embossing powder.


The back looked like this.



With the addition of a vintage picture, gold Krylon pen outlining, a few sprays of varnish each side, some silk thread, and two bits from a broken chunky bracelet - you end up with a book mark!

I love this. Wouldn't get much of the book read, I'd be too busy stroking the bookmark!
