Guest Bookmark: Jack-o-Lantern

A book-blogger friend of mine, Anya, sometimes comes over and makes bookmarks with me. She made this one at my crafty birthday party! It started out looking horribly mistaken (she shared this evaluation), but the more she added, the better it looked! It's always a relief, and something of a delight, when that happens.

I really like that copper border with gold embossing powder on it... but then again, I'm a sucker for copper.

Her crowning touch was definitely drawing the jack-o-lantern face onto the pumpkin.

Anya's asked me to enter her stuff into challenges when it's not too much trouble, and there seem to be a lot of pumpkin-themed challenges about at the moment. To be quite clear, she did make this several weeks ago and did post a small picture on her book blog. I think it's still legit to enter in current challenges -- it hasn't been posted anywhere papercrafty or entered in challenges before. But please delete this entry without guilt if your challenge is not okay with that!

I'm entering Anya's bookmark (on her behalf) into these challenges:

(She does read my blog, so she'll see your comments!)



  1. Haha, yes, for the record, inks, no matter how much you want them to, do not show up well on black paper.... In fact they just end up looking kind of stupid lol!

    *mind controls* more craaaaftying sooooon


  2. Great book marks! Makes me wish I didn't have a Nook :)

  3. Love what you did to the pumpkin, the colour and the cute face. What a great project. Thanks for joining us at NMWC and good luck. HUgs, marion

  4. Oh I have to admit I am a huge fan of using copper too! It looks fantastic on black, like on this bookmark. I think Anya has done a wonderful job...sounds like a fun birthday party!
