There She Goes: ABC Friday

Hello, well it's time for my TSG ABC Friday post .  Remember when we were kids and ABC stood for "Already been chewed"?  Well now that we're all grown up and color all day and play with paste & cardstock, it stands for Anything But a Card!  So today, I made a magnet bookmark!  My in-laws read alot and you know those refrigerator magnets you get from like the Pizza place, etc?  Well they would fold one in half and use it as a book mark!  BRILLIANT!  The bookmark won't fall out of the book because there's a page in between the two magnet pieces.  So I took this idea and made it pretty!  The set is called Dance, by There She Goes and the sentiment is one of my faves or all time!!!!  Of course I LOVE the flowers too 🙂  The front flap of my bookmark is a transparency so it's hard to photograph.

 Here's the bookmark holding my place.  The sentiment is stamped on white, but I took a few Copics and added some stippling using RV10, YG0000, YR00.  To make the sentiment panel pop a little I "edged" it using E47, just ran the side of the E47 along the edges.  The flower is popped up from the book mark a bit, and I raised the flower so it would stick out of the book.  Doing that also allowed me to use a brad in the center of the flower… it won't get squished or ruin the book.

 This is the bottom panel of the bookmark.  I just added some pretty patterned paper to it, and the black piece is the magnet (it hides behind the sentiment panel).

 Well I hope you like my bookmark!  Thanks for popping by & Happy Friday!
