Bookmark with Pink Ink Stamps

I was trying to think of something fun to gift the girls to start summer, and I got to looking at this book owl Pink Ink stamp that they sent me a few weeks back. What to do with it? Bookmark!

I began by using some clean color markers to make the books into a rainbow, and add a bit of color to the owl as well. Note that I didn’t color every single detail – just some fun color + water with a water brush. Just add a bit of color with the marker, then add a bit of water and blend. Repeat as needed it’s that simple to create simple coloring!

Then I took some nuvo clear drops to add dimension to his glasses, the book titles, and anywhere else I felt like it would add a little something.  The supplies I used on this project include (links to Ellen Hutson.com):

Pink Ink Book Owl Stamp
Heidi Swapp gold mist
Clean Color Markers
Nuvo crystal glaze
Lawn Fawn (rainbow) patterned paper
double sided tape
black micron 05 pen

My white paper is 1 3/4″ wide, I mounted it on 2″ wide patterned paper after stamping (and coloring in same way). I also added some flecks of gold, and a bit of pen work in form of an outline and the year.

This bookmark wasn’t quite complete, so I punched a hole and added some trim.

Here is the finished result – along with some Nancy Drew summer reading for the girls!

The rainbow stack of books is my favorite thing I’ve colored in quite a while – and I had a lot of fun making something totally flat (for a change!) with this project. I hope you’ve enjoyed this project – it sure was fun to make and a reminder that I can have hand crafted detail – even when I read!

  1. Really cute! I loved Nancy Drew as a kid, some of my best times were sitting under a tree in the park reading my Nancy Drews for hours and hours. I hope they love them as much as I do. Have a great summer. Michelle t
