Ha ha wasn't that a Madonna song - hmm yes I remember dancing around my bedroom to that! (Many moons ago I'll add.)
Don't worry I'm not mad.......okay, I see you smiling, so I am a little!. Anyway it's the start of a new challenge over at Crafty Boots and the theme this time was set by the lovely Tracie and she chose Material. So we want to see your entries using material, it can be on a card, a page or anything as long as you use material somewhere.
I confess I was a bit stuck, I'm not into sewing or anything and, to be honest, the only material in my house is, well, my clothes and I wasn't about to cut up any even for this challenge!
A few weeks back I went on a little trip out with my friend Debs during that outing we did wander into a well know crafty store where I purchased 2 pieces of felt, only because I loved the animal print. Thankfully I remembered that I had them so I came up with this bookmark -
I cut a strip of Zebra Felt wide and long enough for my chosen idea and cut into the top to create a fringed edge. I stapled a slim piece of card into the middle to create a firm base to glue my image onto. The image (Boobie from Krista Saturated Canary range) was coloured with a mix of markers before being glued onto the card strip and the felt. I added some Zebra Card Candi and Glossy accents to complete the project. Simple. As you can see from the pictures the bookmark sits perfectly in a book with the fringed edge peeking over the top!
I must confess I love it and I shall be making more of these material bookmarks with different characters on.
Right I must get on with designing my next digital image.......Ssssh don't tell anyone, but it will be making an appearance at the next Crafty Boots challenge! <wink, wink, nod, nod>
Take care Zo xx
