Pink and Brown

I love how this has turned out.
The design is from Cardmaking Paradise and I cut it out on my Cameo. The edges are sponged with Distress - walnut stain, and I also stamped a wee flower on his tummy. The beak and feet are painted with acrylic paint.

I would like to enter this at
Polkadoodles - pink and brown

Such a cutie Glennis! I adore his expression :)

Spotted your comment about the bookmarks on my blog. They are great fun and really useful little gifts too.

A little more detail - I make mine at 3" long and 1.75" wide. I do often cheat and use ready scored card stock but it's easy to just cut a 6" length and score in half of course. I find the size is still quite neat but large enough to stamp images onto. Also, I buy cellophane pretzel bags from eBay to package them in. They generally come at 2" wide and about 8" long - the width is perfect and I just lop some off the top so I have about 1" fold over to fasten down with a 'Flip Over the Page' label.

The magnets I use are from the UK of course - about 1" wide by .5" high. They come in pairs with self adhesive backs. One tip is to position the pair onto the inside of the front first and stick that one side down. Keep the pair together, peel off the backing from the remaining unstuck magnet and fold the back of the bookmark gently over and press. That way they're lined up properly......ask me how I know this!! I also stick to the front first in case I press a bit hard and end up with a bit of an impression from the magnet least that way it's on the back, although I've made so many now I do seem to have managed to overcome that problem anyhow..

This is the link to the magnets here in the UK - just so you can see how they are described. They are known as 'self-adhesive magnet pairs'.

PLEASE bring some sunshine with you to the UK :)

Hugs, Di xx
