Create a beautiful bookmark with Andra

Today Andra is showing us how to make this bookmark which could be created as a treat for yourself or a gift for someone else.
She has used:
Daler & Rowney Aquafine Cold pressed watercolour paper 300gsm from The Range
Ecoline Ink 10 set, primary and additional colours from Craft Stash
Heat tool from Hobbycraft 
Rhodia Pencil from Cult Pens
Derwent pencil eraser and brush
Metallic Ruler from B&Q
X cut self healing mat
X cut Rotary Cutter
X cut Corner Punch 2 in 1, 5mm
X cut Screw Hole Punch
Winsor and Newton Gold Calligraphy Ink
Brause Blue Pumpkin Nib and oblique holder 
A string, a smiley charm (optional)
For this tutorial, Andra has created not only one video for us, but two! You can watch the quick tutorial first, and if you continue watching, you will be able to see the real-time tutorial also!
Andra has also added some top tips to go along with this:
  • Although both videos are quite short, the entire process took me an hour. You should be careful to take your time so that you do not smudge your artwork.
  • Be patient to let everything dry. You can use a heat tool to speed this process up a little. Only once it is dry can you then write over the background and erase pencil marks.
  • If you do use a heat tool, keep it a safe distance away from your paper and keep it moving so you do not burn your paper.
