Bookmark

It feels like a L O N G time since I really made anything and certainly longer since I entered a challenge and I'm feeling very out of practice.  Anyway, here's my bookmark entry for the current Stampotique Designers Challenge.  Apols for the awful humour.


I used part of a picture of a group of rooks flying around and coloured it with ink sprays.  (Apparently rooks are known collectively as a "building of rooks"!)
Edit: also entered for MAWTT Bird Challenge this week.

I love this bookmark Carol and the 'awful' joke too. At least it's clean! You don't seem to be out of practice - whenever I have tried stamping and other related crafting techniques, I am always amazed that such seemingly simple processes can be so tricky to master.
