Inspirational #133: Mark the Spot

Welcome to Red Rubber Inspirationals!
We are excited to bring you a weekly challenge that will focus on stamping and related techniques to inspire and enable you to create art!

Inspirational #133 Mark the Spot
Deadline for submitting your projects is Wednesday, August 20th at 11:59 PM US Central time. 

This is Lynda hosting this week's Inspirational!  Our theme this week is all about Marking the Spot: Bookmarks!  It's almost back to school time and kids both young and old need bookmarks to keep track of their reading assignments.  So my challenge to you is to pull out those stamps and stamp a bookmark of some kind.  Remember that you must have stamping on your project.

For complete Inspirational Rules, please read them here.

Here is my bookmark for our challenge this week.  I first stamped the largest butterfly from the Flutter By stamp set onto the cardstock.  I then created a mask by stamping the same image onto a scrap of copy paper and fussy cutting the image out.  I then covered the butterfly with the mask and stamped the companion definition image from the Well Defined stamp set once over the butterfly image and then to the right and left of the image.  I then trimmed the bookmark close.  I then used my Copics to color the image in.  I then inked the edges of the bookmark.  I used a large holepunch on the top and added these fun fibers in a coordinating color to the top.

Kendra created this wonderful bookmark using the Butterfly Swirls set:

I hope you are inspired by my Inspirational this week and link up a newly created project to this post by the deadline!  We look forward to seeing what you create!!

Inspiration Projects - After each Inspirational, the Inspiration Team will choose three projects from those submitted via the link-up tool below which we think best reflect the theme of the Inspirational.

Each artist whose project is chosen receives a special Inspiration Badge they can display on their blog - and we'll showcase these projects each Monday following the end of the Inspirational!
