It's all about me

Hope a nice Mother's Day was had by all.  I settled down to some me time yesterday evening with plans to make a tall card from an off-cut of kraft paper.  As I was working I realised I wasn't going to want to part with it, so I quickly converted it to a bookmark for me.
I've stamped and masked Simply Sassy Guinevere as well as a moon shape and then inked over the top with Dusty Concord and Black Soot Distress Inks.  There's a combination of stamps on the background from Pink Paislee London Market and MME Be Happy as well as some older Pink Paislee ones.  To give the moon some shine I rubbed over it with a silver rub.
Guinevere is coloured with PolyChromos and highlights have been added with Liquid Pearls.  I didn't have a dark enough twine so I twisted my own from some embroidery threads.
Saturated Canary #13 - Twine
Forever Night - Bling
Moving Along With The Times #140 - Special lady (me!)
Allsorts #146 - 3 in a row (butterflies)
One Stitch At A Time #105 - Girly
