Stamp your bookmark with your Ashes of Ex-Lovers BottleMummy Ribs Bottle, and Powdered Cobwebs Pot.  Using your permanent ink, stamp each bottle in a different color and at various angles to create interest.

Once the inks are dry use Distress ink to cover the entire bookmark.

 Layer your bookmark onto various colors of cardstock.
Punch a hole in the top of the bookmark.  Add your die cut skeleton images, words, and your sari ribbon.


For the second bookmark the paper layering will be the same.  Using the permanent ink stamp your Oct. 31 and Spider from the Halloween Bingo Set.  Add in the tiny 31 to fill in the gaps.

  Once your ink is dry create your background.  Cover the entire bookmark using Shaded Lilac Distress Ink.  On your craft mat smoosh on the other two purple shades and spritz with water.  After your have sprayed your water tap your bookmark in the color.  Be sure you only tap it in a couple times.  If you just rub it around you won't get speckles and splats.  Look at your bookmark and see if you like the patterns that are appearing.  If you do, stop and dry your layer.  Once the layer is dry then you can go back and tap into the ink again.  Drying between layers makes a huge difference.

Add on your die cut image. 

Spray your sari ribbon and dry it.  Add the ribbon to the top of the bookmark.
I hope you're inspired to create some on your own.  They are easy and fun to make!
Happy Crafting,
Jess
