Cupcake craft challenge #131–DT project

Hello again everyone, as promised I’m back with my project for this week’s cupcake craft challenge.  This week the lovely Delphine has set the theme and she has chosen “anything but square”.  I decided to make my son a bookmark as he has started to read the Percy Jackson books and is really enjoying them but at the moment is using a piece of paper to keep his page (aww poor love).  Here is my bookmark:

CCC challenge 131 - anything but a square

I bought the fab digi image from Tiddly Inks and coloured him with my promarkers (the digi also comes with some extra book images too).  I thought it looked a bit like my son (well the floppy hair at least) but my son doesn’t think so lol!  I inked all the edges with a tim holtz ink pad just to soften the papers a little. 

We are lucky enough to have two sponsors this week – Lili of the Valley are offering one lucky winner a £10.00 voucher to spend in their online store.

and Tickled Pink stamps are offering a prize of either 1 rubber stamp or two digi images of the winner’s choice from their store.
