Mackintosh Bookmarks (by Asha)

Good morning, friends. I have 2 easy bookmark projects to share with you, both featuring Chocolate Baroque's Mackintosh inspired designs.

For my first project, I started by inking a piece of watercolour paper with  Distress Inks: Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire for the top blue section; Mustard Seed for the yellow; Mowed Lawn and Pine Needles for the bottom green. Then I gave it a light misting of water, dabbed off the excess with a paper towel and dried it with a heat tool.

Then I stamped window panel from Mackintosh Windows with Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed the sentiment from Amazing Mackintosh Words with WOW Gold Rich EP.

The second project features the water colouring technique. I started by heat embossing the window panel from Mackintosh Beauty with WOW Vanilla White EP. Then I did a little simple water colouring. When completely dry, I inked the edges with Cracked Pistachio and finished the project with a sentiment from Amazing Mackintosh Words stamped with Ranger Archival Plum ink.

As always, I have details of the tools and products used on my blog. Thank you for stopping by and drop in soon for more designs by the team ... and don't forget to watch our Lesley on the telly!
