Good morning. Happy Sunday.

Here is my entry for the Crafty Catz #86 - Bookmarks challenge.

This bookmark is made on a mount board tag which has had a crackle background created prior to stamping the border using a stamp from Sheena Douglass Simply Sweet set of stamps. The stamp was embossed with gold and then the rose buds and leaves were added using acrylic paint.

The sentiment "Be the change you want to see in the world" is a stamp from Elusive Images (now Chocolate Baroque). This was also embossed with gold. Worn Lipstick and Tattered Rose Distress inks were used to give a bit of age and colour over the cream crackle.

The fibres for the end of the tag are some that I have had for ages and the little rose buds were part of a prize won on another challenge.
