BBQ Riley Paper Clip Bookmark

I made this cute little paperclip bookmark after seeing Beth Silaika's tutorial here on SCS. Also this weeks Hanna Stamps challenge over at SCS has been set by Judy and she is asking us to make something flat. This could be an ATC, bookmark, tag etc...

Image used is the cute new release BBQ Riley. This stamp can be purchased either woodmounted or unmounted red rubber. Hanna stamps currently has a May Retro Bundle where you can save 20% off when you buy BBQ Riley, Fins Riley and Wedding Riley as a set. See here for details.

Riley is coloured with Prismacolour pencils with sansodor and paper stumps for blending. Dies used are Nestabilities circle and scalloped circle. To finish I added the checkered ribbon as it reminded me of a table cloth.

Hugs,
