The challenge theme this week at the Dilly Beans Designers and Friday Challenges blog has been Bookmarks. Not something I've really made before but I liked the idea and I had a look through my collection of Dilly Beans digi stamps and had a bit of an idea....
I decided that this fabulous Cheshire Cat digi would make a fantastic bookmark on all his own:
See what I mean? He's made for the job! He's long and thin and his tail is just the right shape to hook over the top of a page. :)
So I printed him out nice and big and coloured him in with Promarkers and a white gel pen. I glued him onto a sheet of thicker card, for added durability, cut him out and gave him a little hand-written sign (probably his most famous quote). To finish off I gave him a coating of clear embossing powder, for a nice protective sheen. Isn't he great? I love his sleepy-eyed, knowing grin.
And here he is in action, doing his thing:
And as I think he's so cool, and cos he's such an iconic Alice in Wonderland character, I'm also going to enter him into the We're All Mad Here, So Anything Goes challenge at The Altered Alice. :)
