Vintage Bookmark

Isn't she pretty. We have a picture of my Grandmother that is very similar to this image. This is one of the first images I won when I started winning challenges, it's from Magical Fortnightly Challenge.  She's just been waiting for the right project. Her head band, flowers and some of the border were lavender, so after I printed this off I heat set it then colored the parts I wanted blue with a Copic Marker. I don't know if you'll be able to tell, but the large flower on her head band is a little paper flower I had in my stash and I gave it some tints of blue with the same marker. The small heart doily I hit gently with the sponge and Broken China Distress Ink, sponged Whisper White with Broken China and Faded Jeans, touched the edges of the black tag with a silver pen, add the silver eyelet and Mulberry ribbon and silver ribbon, mounted the doily and my pretty girl. Wah-Lah! a Bookmark you can't miss.
