Rogue Challenge #4 - Toile Bookmark


I just saw the new challenge over on the Rogue Redhead Designs blog, and you know I had to play along. :-) For this challenge, we have to have a tag and a quote on our project, so I looked around my studio to see what I could do.

I wanted to try a new technique from Technique Junkies called Back to Back, but never really got around to it. So tonight, I decided to go ahead and give it a shot. After I created my background with this technique, I decided to cut this out with the new Tim Holtz tag die (rule #1 of the challenge). I looked through my Rogue stamps to see which quote I wanted, and this one from the Relish Reading set is so perfect for a bookmark.

I stamped the quote (rule #2 of the challenge) on kraft cardstock and then cut it out with scissors. The flower was cut from white cardstock and I sponged the purple inks on it, with the darker ink on the very edges. While my sponge was still loaded with purple ink, I dabbed it over some white seam binding.

Why don't you check out the challenge and play along? There is an awesome prize for one lucky winner, so give it a shot! :-)
