Chocolate Baroque: Mackintosh Bookmarks

Good morning, friends. I have 2 easy bookmark projects to share with you, both featuring Chocolate Baroque's Mackintosh inspired designs.

For my first project, I started by inking a piece of watercolour paper with  Distress Inks: Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire for the top blue section; Mustard Seed for the yellow; Mowed Lawn and Pine Needles for the bottom green. Then I gave it a light misting of water, dabbed off the excess with a paper towel and dried it with a heat tool.

Then I stamped window panel from Mackintosh Windows with Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed the sentiment from Amazing Mackintosh Words with WOW Gold Rich EP.

To finish the project, I layered it wth yellow and black cardstock, added a small yellow eyelet, Lawn Fawn Candy Corn cord and little drops of Daffodil Liquid Pearls.

The second project features the water colouring technique. I started by heat embossing the window panel from Mackintosh Beauty with WOW Vanilla White EP and did a little simple water colouring with Gansai Tambi. When completely dry, I inked the edges with Cracked Pistachio and stamped a sentiment from Amazing Mackintosh Words with Ranger Archival Plum ink.

To finish the project, I layered it wth plum and turquoise cardstock, added a small plum eyelet, Lawn Fawn Liberty cord and 3 pink bling.

And here they are together. I think they make lovely little gifts to give friends. These bookmarks are easy and fun to make too!

Thank you so much for stopping by and have an amazing day!
