Gothic Revival Bookmark by Deborah



 

 



This one's nice and easy - and very therapeutic if you like colouring in (albeit, not perfectly). The stamps reminded me of stained glass windows and floor tiles in the gothic revival style, as seen in the Houses of Parliament or the St Pancras Hotel. So I chose the colours accordingly.

Stamp the large border from Pattern Quilt three times, plus the thinner border, large and small rosettes. Stamp the tiles and edger tiles from the Prima set. Remember to use a dye ink (or Memento) if you are colouring with ProMarkers.

Trim the borders to size and arrange them, and the tiles, on the tag before gluing down. Edge the tag with the black ProMarker for definition. Glue the smaller rosette onto the middle of the larger one and glue on to the tag. Then start colouring....
