Tea Time - Book Mark

Hello everyone, I know I have not been posting for a while!
But some of the things I’m making at the moment is for my mother’s Birthday (22 Feb) and I can’t post that or else my mother will see it!
But here is a bookmark I made for myself!!
First time I’m making something for myself

I like it because it’s different from a normal bookmark.
It fits over the corner of your book. You can go and look at the tutorial on how to make one here.

This is how you put it in your book. It fits over the corner of the page!

This is what the back of the page looks like when you turn the page over.

I used an old digi stamp and colored it with my Copics........ Yes I said Copics!
My brand new Copics that I bought from a friend, here in South Africa! 
This is my first creation with them!! So here is the colors I used:
E37, E35, E33 and E53 - for the mouse’s skin and the chair.
RV34, RV32, RV00 - for the top part of the Mouse’s dress and the bottom part of the cupcake.
RV13, RV11 and RV10 - for the mouse’s dress, tee cup, tee pot, flower and the snail’s back.
Y00 - for the flower pot.
B000 - for the water in the flower pot.
E00, E21, R20 - for the snail’s skin
G17, G14 and G12 - for the table cloth and flower leaves.
W3 - for the shadow around the image.

I used my heart puncher to make a pretty border at the bottom of my bookmark.

Here is the back of the book mark.

I used some pretty ribbon and lace with a nice sparkly rose paper.
