Don't Tickle the Dragon

My soon to be five year old grandson just started Kindergarten this week and each night before bed we read books together. He's getting to be a good reader.  Recently I was inspired to make some bookmarks for a challenge, and I thought that this dragon and the related sayings from the Chapel Road Artstamps, Quips, would make a cute set of  bookmarks for him. All of the stamping was done on vellum. The under layer of the bookmark was embossed in an embossing folder and highlighted with white ink. I love the way the embossing shows through the vellum. I had these bookmark covers in a drawer just waiting for the perfect time.
