Rogue Redhead Designs offers deeply etched unmounted stamps on high quality rubber. I absolutely love the level of detail!
I am very honored to be on Shar's first design team, and have been having tons of fun playing with these stamps. For my project pictured above, I wanted to create a bookmark as a little thank-you for a friend who lent me a book (Water for Elephants - great read!). Bookmarks are great little gifts for book club members, or to accompany a gift certificate to a bookstore, or just to say 'thanks for lending me your book' as in my case.
I stamped the reading girl right onto some text print paper from My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Line, and colored her with Copics. I used light to medium colors to keep the transparent effect. Next up came some papers on top and bottom from Pink Paislee's Parisian Anthology collection. The butterfly is punched from the same paper, and highlighted with a little bling. I also gathered a bit of blue seam binding for a trim, and used it as the tie for the bookmark, with a crystal charm also from the same Pink Paislee collection. The sentiment from the Relish Reading stamp set is stamped and distressed, and added to the top of the image.
Here's another version of the same bookmark, this time with a different quote and a different butterfly embellishment.
