This is a little bit of work, first make your bookmark: this is done by using 2 pcs of thick plastic paper (not sure what it is called but it is much thicker then reg. acetate) on the 1st pc- colour with Alcohol inks, then take the 2nd pc and stamp using Staz-on then turn that pc over and stamp images on the front. Stamp saying on vellum and place between the 2 pcs and finally line the 2 pcs up and use 1/4" mettalic tape around the edges to keep the pcs together. Now make the frame using UTEE (3 layers) them impress stamp design into frame, then colour frame using Alcohol Inks (either Pinta or Adirondack or both) let dry. Backgroung on card (inside frame) is stamped and coloured then saying is stamped on vellum then mounted on top of background. Frame is then mounted using foam tape but leave 1/16" on each inner side so that the bookmark will slide in & out easily.
