Transparent Bookmark

Karen has an awesome challenge this week over at StampTV.  She hosts the weekly, Anything But a Card challenge. This week the challenge is to make a bookmark using a folded piece of plastic or transparency sheet and embellishing it with stamps and other fun stuff.
I made a masculine bookmark with the new Gina K Designs stamp set, Gone Fishing. I stamped the Cat O Nine Tails with white Stazon onto the folded transparency. I stamped the fisherman and the sentiment with Night of Navy on Pure Luxury Kraft card stock and cut it out with the Labels One Nestabilities die. I drew a fish line with a white pen and I coated the word FISH with glaze ink from a Sakura glaze pen. I added some brads in the corder for a manly hardware look. The Pure Luxury In The Navy mat layer is also cut from a Labels One die, the next size up. I embossed it with the Argyle embossing folder and adhered it to the transparency sheet. Then I wrapped the striped ribbon around with the ends meeting in the middle front. I also added a small ribbon tab to the top. Finally I adhered the Kraft layer with 3M foam tape.
