Bookmark Challenge

The challenge this week at Meljen's Designs is to create a bookmark.  I love to read and never seem to have a bookmark when I need one.  I just use whatever is handy nearby.  So this challenge was perfect for me.

I used the image Mushroom Mouse and made a simple bookmark.  I have had this image on my list for some time and thought this was the perfect challenge for him!  You can find all of the images from Meljen's Designs at Whimsy Stamps.  I colored the image using colored pencils blended with baby oil.  I used magnet tape on the inside so that it would stay inside a book.

Bookmark measures 5.5" x 2.5"
