Tuesday taggers

The challenge this week at TUESDAY TAGGER is to make a VINTAGE BOOKMARK.
I always have this book beside my bed.... have done since 1982 when i brought it.... and usually i use as a book mark..................

....................this corner of an envelope........ so i made a proper bookmark but stuck my corner to it.... i like the way it just slots on the page and doesnt fall off/out. I used CHERRY PIE STAMPS, coloured with distress inks and black card as a base.
Edgar Allen Poe is one of my all time favourites.... along with M R James and H P Lovecraft.... sad arnt i?
Please go and check out the other book marks that the Taggers have made.... these guys are really really inspirational.
Thanks for coming over love lynx
