ISS Sneak Peek....Mieko!



Good Afternoon Everyone!

I hope that you all had a great weekend. The weather around here is quite soggy and according to the weatherman....more rain is in the forecast. Smiley from millan.net Well it's not gonna rain on my parade....perfect day to get creative and visit my blogging friends!

In the meantime, I would like to share Mieko with you, Mieko is a new member to ISS Anime line. I love ISS Anime characters.......especially the eyes! Getting back to the story, Mieko is basically a image that features the head and upper shoulder area. I know that their is a proper name and all, I just can't think of it at the moment! *lol*

After much thought about how I would use Mieko, the light bulb Smiley from millan.net came on...stamps like these are perfect for book markers, lid decorations and on and on!!!! I brought some huge paper clips a couple of years ago and never opened the package until a few days ago. Why do some of us do stuff like this.... buy stuff and put it away because YOU know that you will need it one day type of thing? Smiley from millan.net



I kept my book marker relatively simple, the only embellishments are ribbon and one gem in the hair bow area. The inks used were Copic Markers. The card stock Neenah Solar White and Bazzil. Originally I wanted to use my oval Nesties, but ended up using the rectangle dies instead. I brought the huge paper clips at an office products store. To adhere the paper clip, I used the 1/2 inch size double sticky tape and adhered the clip to the base layer. I imagine that any size tape will do but for added security, I used the 1/2 inch sized tape. I also used pop dots on the back of the top layer for dimension.

Well...I have to get dinner ready and prepare the week. Smiley from millan.net Have a great day and thank you all so much for stopping by!

Hugs


Risa

Good idea to make a book mark with this image. So this is Anime, okay...they have very expressive eyes, don't they? I love the way you colored her, especially the hair. Great gift idea, too. She's adorable.

Mieko is so pretty! I love these book markers on the giant clip! My niece's middle name is Mieko, she'd be tickled when I tell her that there is a rubberstamp image with her name and it's anime too...she's into that! TFS! hugs, Teri
