Rogue Inking at Craft-Room

Hi all, another Craft-Room Challenge is upon us, we had some great entries for our musical theme and the winners will be announced as always next week.
Our sponsor this fortnight is Rogue Redhead Designs makers of excellent quality rubber stamps. They have a voucher for one lucky winner to spend at their site. 

It is Nikki's turn to choose our theme and she has challenged us to 'Ink it' and only use a Rubber, Acrylic or  other type of 'real' stamp on your creations. THAT MEANS NO DIGI STAMPS ! Now I have to admit to not being a fan of Digi stamps - it's not messy enough for me and so loved creating my inspiration piece this week. I have used an image and words from the Relish Reading set by Rogue Redhead Stamps and made a bookmark.
 I coloured with a variety of Distress Inks before stamping the letters background (PaperArtsy Stamp). I painted the Rogue redhead stamped image with Derwent inktense blocks before fussy cutting out and attaching to the bottom of the bookmark.   
The proverb and little book are coloured with distress inks and the edges distressed, I applied glossy accents to the little book but it's not clear on the pic. 
I really hope you join in with our challenge so dig out your favourite stamps and get inking! 

I'm entering my bookmark into the Rogue Redhead challenge which is to use Spring fashion Colours - although you don't have too I think I managed to get them all in !
