Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Animal Antics

As this is the first Saturday of the month...this is my second post of the day...please scroll down for my Penny Black Saturday Challenge DT post.


This week it's Kate's turn to choose the theme of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, which is:

'Animal Antics'

We have two fabulous sponsors for this challenge:

Prize from Crafter's Companion - £10 gift voucher!


Prize from DigiDarla Designs - 5 digis of the winner's choice!

I've used 'Circus Act Dogs' by Penny Black to make a bookmark. I started by cutting the edges off a manilla tag, then rounding the corners to make a bookmark shape. I inked over the tag with 'Stormy Sky' and 'Faded Jeans' Distress Inks, then inked around the edges with 'Tea Dye'. The paw prints are a background stamp from Hobbycraft, and are stamped in 'Tea Dye'. I threaded some string, and seambinding ribbon from the Ribbon Girls through the top.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge.
