Tilda Gelato Bookmark for You!

For summer books readers! If you are relaxing this summer with some readings, you'll love arm yourself with a bookmark 😁, right? So I did. Oh, this bookmark is a giveaway (read how you enter at the end).


So I stamped Tilda Gelato with Archival ink "Sienna" on a "dirty" kraft paper for the vintage effect. Then I coloured Tilda with Inktense pencils and waterbrush. I drew line with white gel pen around Tilda for the effect of old style stickers, do you remember those ones? When the printing was messed up? and colours sometimes were smudged on upon each other? lol! Now it is vintage funny thing. I admit it was harder than keeping it clean, but I am satisfied with the dirtiness effect.


Why is she standing on a stack of books (stamp from Stampendous originally had an owl on the books)? So, the story is that Tilda is preparing for summer vacation, she gathers her summer readings. It's sunny and warm, a gelato is what is needed!! Where should she go next? I wonder where she'll be reading her books, at the beach or go camping? Or may be a trip to the moon! lol!

This kraft paper is smooth and flexible, not like regular cardstocks, if it gets wet, it bends beautifully, so I won't make a card out of it at all, but great for flexible mixed media projects. Therefore I made hangers of the Gelato die and Medallion die, cool! I coloured the gelato die cuts with Distress ink and pasted on craft foam using Mod Podge matte. I also sealed the bookmark with Mod Podge too. On the Medallion I stamped Special, distressed it. This is a special book mark for a special one (see the how to enter giveaway at the end of this post).


The final effect I reached was imitation of leather, in touch and colour. Very happy with it and very satisfied.

Those are the dies and the stamp:




They are from 2 of 5 new collections, here I used dies from Summer and Galaxy. check out the collection and pre-order it with discount 5%, use TILDA at check out. Or guess the question and get the final discounts, click on the banner to learn more...

Suha Hazboun
