A Bookmark Tag

With the current fortnightly challenge on Tag It Tuesday being Book Print, I have found that I am using the tags that I have created as book marks.  This is my second.
I started by adding the top layer of a paper towel mop up sheet to a #8 manilla tag.  It was coloured with Lava Red, Peacock Green and Golden Mint Pixie Powders.  Before trimming, it was sealed with Distress Collage Medium and dried thoroughly.
I have only one sheet of the Tim Holtz Terminology Tissue Wrap left (sadly no longer available), so used only two tiny scraps to add some text to the tag (in the same way as the paper towel).
I stamped the individual owl from the Wise Owls stamp set by Claritystamp onto a piece of mixed media card using Onyx Black Versafine ink, added the separate mortar board, and heat embossed the whole thing with detail clear embossing powder.  He was coloured using the Flesh Colour and Beige Kuretake Clean Colour Pens and the Sepia and Dark Ochre Ecoline pens.  Before he was glued down, the separate tassel was stamped directly onto the tag in the appropriate place.
To give the owl something to stand on, I added the word 'read' using the Word Chain Alphabet (also by Claritystamp), again stamped in Onyx Black directly onto the tag and heat embossed to match.
