Splodge-A-Mask, Distress Stains and Dylusions Stamps.

Yo ho Bloggers, the three Bookmarks shown here were easy to make and great fun too!
I used lo tac tape to secure the Square Edged Lattice Mask, that is available to buy from SplodgeAway onto some watercolour paper and splodged all over with various colours of Distress Stains through the Mask … fabulous effect! 
 After removing the Mask and drying my work with a heat gun, I 'sliced' the colourful result into three bookmark shapes.
Then I stamped over the top of them using a few Dylusions leaf images with Archival Black Ink and painted them with the Distress Stains.
My SplodgeAway Mat made a handy and convenient paint palette.
Finally, I stamped more of the leaves onto white card, cut a few out and stuck them on top of some of the coloured leaves, using foam pads, to add 'interest' and a bit of dimension!
I layered all three bookmarks onto more white card, added some Bakers Twine plus a Quickutz die-cut for the top of the tag.... job done!
So... there we are … my take on the SplodgeAway blogspot  theme today “ Autumn Glory ”

I am entering my bookmarks into the Visible Image Challenge  Inspired By Autumn.

Visible Image sell some wonderful stamps here, on their website.
Thanks for popping by today.
