French Fairy Altered Bookmark

Who doesn't love a pretty little bookmark? I wanted to use a vintage photo of a French woman on this one and turn her into a vintage that's exactly what I did.

French Fairy Altered Art Bookmark

I used a turquoise blue patterned cardstock for the background. The colors seemed to go perfectly with the French femme that I added next, along with wings to make her look more like a fairy. Then it was time to embellish. I added a bit of torn and distressed contrasting paper to the top of the bookmark. And I added some distressed tag art, a sticker and a butterfly photo at the bottom of the altered bookmark. I also decided to shape the bottom edge of this bookmark, to make it a little more unique.  And I topped it off with some ivory organdy ribbon.

She does look like a French fairy, no?
