Antsy For Reading

I just love these bookmarks that Beate Johns created and posted the instructions on Splitcoast Stampers. The instructions are easy to follow and when you are finished decorating you have a very substantial bookmark that fits very nicely on the corner of your book.
Doodle Pantry has these cute digis with the ants. She has created quite a few different scenarios with the ants, and I have fallen for them and have started collecting. I just saw this evening she has come up with some Christmas ants.
At Paper Sundaes this week they are challenging us to use Mixed Mediums-different kinds of mediums to color-so on this card you will find that I sponged the ground and sky with my dye ink pads, and colored the rest of the image with my Copic markers.
I also did a little bit of sewing and embossing with an edge Cuttlebug folder. I've had those for a long time, but just don't seem to pull them out like I should. It was perfect for the edge of this bookmark.
5 Challenges:
Supplies: Instructions from Splitcoast Stampers, Papers: Stampin Up-River Rock, Whisper White, Garden Green, Stamps: Doodle Pantry-Antsy For Reading, Ink: Stampin Up-Pear Pizzazz, Crushed Curry, Marina Mist, Copic markers, Cuttlebug embossing folder-Frills, Pressed Petals Chip Chatter-dk.green 2 1/2" letter, All My Memories-Red Rick Rack, sewing machine, Scor-Tape.

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G ♥
