Sepia Bookmark

Hello everyone! It's Delphine here today to share a simple bookmark, with a vintage feel to it. To create my bookmark, I used the cute Mayleedee stamp by Paperbabe Stamps. I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black and then die cut my image with an MFT die.

To colour Mayleedee, I used only W Copic Markers. I started by colouring the skin, using W00, 0, 1, 3 and coloured her clothes and hair using W5, 7, 9 to create some contrast. For a more vintage look, I then used Distress Inks (Antique Linen and Vintage Photo), putting the image back in my die, as you can see below. 

As a final touch, I added 2 little butterflies in Sepia Archival Ink and a Prima sentiment that seemed perfect with the look in Mayleedee's eyes. And to me, reading is about dreaming and escaping - a perfect little bookmark for myself!

Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,
Delphine xx
