Study Tilda Bookmark

Good day everyone. I struggled with uploading photos to my blog the past 2 days; actually I've had problems the last while. Yesterday I could not upload at all, I kept getting "Upload failed. Server returned invalid response." error messages.  I was most annoyed after trying for 2 hours, I gave up at the end. Well, today things are going a bit better; had a rough start but all worked out now.
I have a bookmark to share with you today.  I made a pencil bookmark with Study Tilda.  The pencil measures 1.5"(W) x 8"(H) without the paper lace edging.

I water colored the Study Tilda image with Distress Inks. I am new to this coloring technique, it takes me longer to do the coloring than using Copic markers, but I thoroughly enjoy it. I hope to improve my water color skill over time and with practice.
I added some Viva Decor Glitter Liner to Tilda's wings and then fussy cut out the colored image when it dried. I attached the image, a die cut butterfly (Magnolia DooHickey), some ribbons and a charm to dress up the bookmark.

Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great day wherever you are.


I wish to enter this bookmark in the following challenges:
