I absolutely love this image from Crackerbox Palace, it reminds me of cool breezes, bubbling streams and faery tales I used to tell myself. On long car journeys I would pretend to be walking amongst the clouds playing with the faeries and visiting their castles. This bookmark is a reflection of that world.
Once again I have used the Sleeping Faery Dreama and Cloud digi images from Crackerbox Palace printed on to printable acetate, usually alcohol markers won't work on acetate but because this has a rough side I found the brighter colours did work. (I've now invested in a set of permanent markers.) I build the bookmark up with blue textured card stock from my stash and glue all three layers with cosmic shimmer glue (have to endorse this glue again because it's just awesome - it dries clear, has a small nozzel and dries quickly but gives you enough time to manoeuvre your bits and pieces if they aren't straight - I have to thank Hazel at Dragon's Paper Craft in Rugby for recommending this.) The tassel is from Joanna Sheen, the stamped F and T on the back sentiment were a set of stamps from Poundland, the rest of the wording is written with blue Glitz It Glitter Glue and I used pink gems from my stash on the dress. Another fun creation.
