Bookmarks for Teachers

Hi friends. I made a couple of bookmarks for my son's teachers at his preschool. They are his first teachers and I wanted to make something special for them. I made a few cards too which I shall share very soon.

I used a mix of stamps from PABD - Summer Cooler, Avery Elle - Alphabet Stamps and Maya Road - Ornate Frames, to complete the sentence "A scoop of thanks, sprinkled with love, from Neil". I mounted the sentiment stamps all at once on my Stampoholic tool and that made my work so much easier. I stamped the wordings with Versafine Onyx black ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. 

Then I white embossed the ice cream cup image and colored it using Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens. I used multiple colors for the ice cream scoop to give it an 'Ice Cream Sundae' look.

I applied glossy accents in swirly motion on the ice cream scoop and it looks oh so yummylicoius in real life!! Have a closer look!! I also stamped the small sprinkles image from the same PABD stamp set and embossed it with Zing hot pink embossing powder.  

At last, I mounted the white panels on colorful card stock and tied a ribbon on the top.
