I have used papermania papers, stamped around the edges with little morsals stamps (like tapestry stamps had them for years and years, played with them but never actually used them on a card, the fairy is from an articlicous set unicorns and fairies. I have used Victorian velvet and peeled paint distress inks. Punched around the page with a Martha Stewart punch and the sentiment is from one of the flower fairy sets crafters companion

Gift bag

I had some brown paper bags from a well known high street store, so thought I would up cycle them.
I cut 1 down just below the logo and allowed the same width as the logo,either side of the handle strengthening panel  for the sides.
Added extra waste bag to the tops and bottom to strengthen the bag and then decorated it.
I used papermania papers and flowers, lotv image coloured with distress inks onto watercolour card.  I am new to colouring with distress inks and I quite like it.
Hand stitched around the design, was going to use the sewing machine but just could not face getting it out and setting it up. Good excuse for watching the men's beach volley ball
thanks for looking angxxxx
