Newton Bookmark

Just stopping by with a bookmark I quickly made for my forever reading step-dad to accompany his Father's Day gift...

I started by cutting the tag 3 times from off-cuts of white cardstock, stamped the image from Newton's Book Club in black Versafine.  The sentiment is from the same set.

I've used my Prisma pencils and inspiration for the colours from Inky Paws challenge.  To finish I added an eyelet to strength the hole and the ribbon was from my languishing collection.

The back of the bookmark is covered with random paw prints  but I forgot to take a picture... hey ho!

  6. WOW! After all the bookmarks I've made, this one just grabbed my attention with that perfect image and sentiment! I love the ribbon, and wish I could have added ribbons to mine, but there are concerns with children and choking hazards, so mine were plain. This is a gem, sure to add extra fun to reading a book:) Love how you colored this too - it's the perfect gift for someone who enjoys reading!
