Needed a bookmark so took a selfie! *

Yes that's right I needed a bookmark.  I usually use an old letter or envelope so thought I would treat myself and make one.  So I took a selfie and just look how great it turned out after a little touch up here and there - just perfect don't you think!

I bought this stamp from someone on a facebook selling page - it is manufactured by INVOKE stamps - never heard of them before buying this one.  I just adore her and her name is Elaine - sorry Catrina lol.

I stamped the body first then her camisole and skirt.  The skirt was just a basic outline  - I drew the net effect.  I then coloured her in and stippled black ink randomly over top.  I then sealed her for another eternity using mod podge.  

On the back I wiped alot of different inks and brushos which meant saturating the back of tag - the result some of the colours seeped through to the front and I just love the effect it has.  To help prevent the bookmark from sliding out when in use I covered the back with velvet effect card. 

That's it my selfie is complete (take a look at my Altered Eclectic badge in the side bar - see it is me I did not lie lol) and I love it so much. Looks like a need a dentist real soon - appointment now made lol.   Now for the pics....

Hope you drop by again real soon

Love and hugz alwayz
