Book Mark with Card

I have made this Book Mark and card using some of the gorgeous crafting goodies sent to me by a dear crafting friend Max They included some sponge blocks for making rainbow backgrounds etc. with alcohol inks as well as some very pretty papers. I have been wanting to use them for sometime now so decided today was the day. I had so much fun making 'rainbow' type patterns using the sponges of which I loaded up with various colours of Alcohol Inks. I also used a little of the gorgeous K'ology papers from K and Co. they really are totally gorgeous.
I have used some acetate and embossed to make a pocket to hold the bookmark. The bookmark was also 'rainbow inked' I then added some more inks, using the sponges, over the embossing.  I have heat embossed a flourish stamped image as well as Cuttlebug embossed onto the bookmark. In the pic. the book mark looks almost quite silver but in reality is is not.
