Masculine Bookmark

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a masculine inspiration challenge.  Masculine projects are a challenge for me but my husband gave me a great idea!  He suggested I make bookmark for him.  I immediately thought My Digital Studio.  I haven’t played on it in awhile and this was the perfect opportunity.  I started with the First Edition digital DSP.  The edges look sponged because I used background #1 of the Vintage Overlays digital DSP.  There’s a great tutorial for this technique on www.mydigitalstudio.net.  The images are from digital stamp The Open Seas.  I used Cherry Cobbler and Not Quite Navy. I used two pieces of chipboard and covered each side with the  digital background.  Before I glued them together I put the Antique brads through.  EASY PROJECT!
