Todays bloody offering is a bookmark that I made for my calendar. I´ve used the "brushless watercolor technique" that i learned in the Creative Chemistry 101 class with Tim Holtz. Stamped the rubber stamps from "heart wings" (from Smeared Ink Rubber club) with distress markers in black and red, sprayed it with water and stamped on watercolor paper. Distressed the background with the same colors but with ink blending tool and ink pad. I tried to avoid the inner white on stamps because I wanted them to stand out a little bit more than the rest. Splotched with distress ink stain a few times. Coated the bookmark several times.
Stamped the metal tag with metal stamps and covered with acohol ink.
