Night Sky Shaker Bookmark

Night Sky Bookmark.jpg

For this bookmark I used my Tim Holtz blenders to do some ink blending on some watercolor paper. I used some blue distress inks to try and make a night sky. When making a sky you want to have lighter color at the bottom going to a darker color at the top.

I used white embossing powder to emboss a bunch of stars and a moon. Sadly I had a lot of trouble with the embossing on this bookmark. I forgot to test the paper before starting the embossing to make sure it was dry. As it turned out the paper was not dry enough from all of the ink blending so the embossing powder stuck to everything instead of just the stamped areas. See the video below to see how I worked through all the problems that arose.

After finally getting all of the embossing issues sorted I used my fuse tool to make this bookmark a shaker bookmark.
