Live in the Sunshine

I have had an afternoon of stamping fun
and decided this time on a bookmark for my Granddaughter Felicity
She loves reading and joined in the Summer reading challenge at our local library.
She has her own book bag for when she comes to stay but all the bookmarks we have made she has taken home so here is the start of a few for here.
I know she will love this but may not be too happy that I've used shrinkles without her she loves the magic paper!!

I have used watercolour card I like to use this when using the Distress Oxides 
So the background was done using Oxides - Salty Ocean ~Broken China ~Peacock Feathers and Lucky Clover - The stamping (except for the sentiment ) was done using Faded Jeans.

The actual bookmark was Salty Ocean and then spritzed
I then did the background and gave a good spritz and added droplets of water
I used stamp set
Oceania
and
Wish you were here
The sentiment was stamped and then cut out
I coloured the starfish and the dolphin using my lovely polychromo pencils
adhered the starfish 

added one of the dolphins with a few foam tabs and the other which had been stamped on shrinkles was attacked with my heat gun 
I soooooo love him, uber cutness

I finished of with splashes of white pen and a little doodling with black pen
and a slice of ribbon
Thank you for looking
