For Grandpa

How's everyone's weekend going?  We've had such a nice relaxing time I feel very blesssed.  Tonight at my parent's house my little niece tried to say Grandpa for the first time.  It was just the sweetest thing!  My dad was quite delighted too :) 

My dad enjoys reading so for Father's Day I made him a bookmark, just simple, but classic and masculine too.   I hadn't posted it yet, so I thought I'd give you a little look!


I used the Flourishes set Antique Map and stamped it onto Flourishes Classic Ivory paper and then colored it with Copic Markers, then added lots of sponging with Distress Inks to give it more of a weathered look. 

A few punches of the wavy border along the bottom for that sea feel....

 

Hope you're having a great weekend!
