Starry Night

I've been playing about with inks and embossing powders the last few days and tonight have made a bookmark with two challenges in mind ...

Just for Fun: "Say it with ... Words", and
Stampotique Designers Challenge: SDC37 - "Bookmark"





The verse is an old nursery rhyme which I thought was perfect for a bookmark. Don't we all like to read when we're tucked up in bed at night - I do!

These are the only Stampotique stamps I have - "Girl with heart purse" and the "Star" by Jo Capper-Sandon which is free with this month's Craft Stamper magazine.
Background is various distress inks and Glimmer Mist

Thanks for paying me a visit.
Sweet dreams!
Suze xx
