Inspiration from Tim Holtz

 Hello and happy Friday!   I just enjoyed CHA so much.  I was mesmerized at  the Ranger booth and of course, by watching Tim Holtz  do his distress ink magic!   I even got a picture with him!   How lucky can one get!   I was super inspired just watching his wonderful creativity.    I decided to share a bookmark I created using Ranger's wonderful Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads.   I used Tina Wenke's Stampavie image, "Bird on Dogwood Branch" for my focal image. Tina Wenke is notorious for her cute and beautiful images.  This wonderful polymer stamp is no exception!

Copic Markers Used
Bird:  B27, B21, B01, B000 and B37 for Shadow area
Flowers: RV 23, RV21, RV000 and RV34 for shadow area
Leaves: G40, YG 63 and G95 for shadow area
Perfect Medium was used to stamp small butterflies and highlighted with Perfect Pearls Pigment.
If you do not have Perfect Medium, a VersaMark pad can be substituted.
The edges were generously sponged with Ranger Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
A gold tassel was applied to complete the bookmark.
I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy project!

I am linking this tag with the following challenges:
