Crazy Bird Bookmarks

Hello, Emily here with some fun bookmarks to share.  First, i ADORE these Crazy Birds by Tim Holtz... they are just so fun to look at and to color.  I started with stamping the birds using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I heat set the images before starting watercoloring them.  I used Gansai Tambi watercolors and Ranger's waterbrush.  Even without using watercolor paper, I was still able to blend the colors beautifully.  Next i used Avery Elle's bookmark die, then laminated my bookmarks.  Finally, I trimmed the laminate and added twines.  

Thanks for visiting.  Have a great day!
