WOYWW #258 - Bookmark Making Under Way

Happy Wednesday!  Today I am sharing what is on my work desk with you.  You may remember when I shared my desk last week my pen pal letters were under way.  Well, this week I decided to start working on bookmarks for my fountain pen pen pals. I thought they would be fun to tuck into letters as a surprise.

Stampers Anonymous has a great stamp set with fountain pen related images and old cursive handwriting images, etc.  I thought they would be perfect for this gang of letter writers.  I used my archival black ink and plenty of Distress Inks.  Only one is done so far, but it was a lot of fun to make.

Finished bookmark:



The metal nib is from Tim Holtz and I think it was a fun embellishment.  The seam binding was stamped with a fun swirl image from the set as well.

Thank you, Julia, for the desk hopping fun!  If you haven't joined in,  you might give it a go as the sharing of desks is fun, you learn a lot and the friendships made are priceless.

I am looking forward to visiting with you today!

Until next time!
