This cute little tyke is "Bookworm Jaime". This image is just perfect for all those avid readers...so I decided to make a bookmark. You can include me in that avid reader category. I love to immerse myself in a good book! The papers are from a MME Stella and Rose 6x6 pad (I buy my 6x6 paper pads HERE). These little projects are a great way to use up scraps of design paper left over from other projects. They also come together fairly quick...no need to spend time fussing over embellishments as bookmarks need to be "low-profile". I had originally planned on adding a little tassel to the top, but I got a bit lazy, lol. Next time I make one up, I think I'll add an eyelet and make a colour coordinated tassel from embroidery floss. Oh, and I absolutely LOVE this Dr. Seuss inspired sentiment that comes with Bookworm Jaime!!
I stamped the image on Neenah cardstock with Memento Ink and coloured it with Copic markers. All paper edges were sponged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I added some machine...and look at how wonky it is! That was not intentional at all. It was supposed to be all nice and straight. Hmm...let's chalk it up to the Benadryl I took that evening for allergies. lol (Anybody else out there having a miserable time with allergies??? ) Lesson learned here? Do not operate a sewing machine while under the influence of Benadryl ;)
