Bookmark swap


Over on UK Stampers forum I've joined in with the bookmark swap.
We each made a bookmark to swap with another crafter.
This time we received & sent to different people.
Not many 'rules' to the swap, you could choose size, shape etc 
but you had to include stamping.
This is my bookmark.


I used double sided 12x12 paper for the base & surround
Then used torn paper from an old book, which I tinted with 
distress ink and then stamped using the ex libris stamp 
from the National Trust


I stamped the sentiment from Paper Artsy & added the Initial.


I used my Crop-o-dile to attach the eyelet 
& threaded through the ribbon to finish

Hope that the recipent likes it ...
