Deep Ocean Challenge DT Post

Hi everyone I'm running mega late. I've been busy decorating the conservatory, weve been installing new window sills etc. Then today whilst things were drying I decided to start the kitchen.............yep gluten for punishment lol.
So of course I forgot about my DT project...........oops.

So its a new challenge over at Deep Ocean & this fortnight my lovelies its..........

Thankfully I did have this made. The lovely Christine of Paper Nest Dolls commisioned me to make her a gift bag using one of her lovely images.
This is one of the images she gave me.
I used some of my favourite Maja Design papers for this & used my favourite colours.........well ok one of my favourite colours ;-)
Papers are Vintage Autumn Basics No. 1 the top layer is the reverse side.

The flowers are Prima & I've added a Tim Holtz 'Memo Pin' & some 'Pearl String'.
The beautiful triple layer lace I got from Live & Love Crafts.

This is the reverse side of the bag. This is going on a table at the show so I've kept the back simple.
The small tag is from the same paper collection & the border at the top I cut from the same 12x12 sheet of Maja Design. 
The plaster frame I made myself using lightweight clay from Crafts & Me. The fabric flower is from a Prima flower & I added a wee bit of Pearl String again. The sentiment is from a stamp from my the bag was just intended for show I thought this kind of sentiment would be better.

Purple seam binding is from LLC & the white seam binding is from my stash. The flowers at the top are again Prima. There is also yummy CheeseCloth under there as well.

The super cute image is called 'Some Bunny Love Me' & I coloured her with distress markers. Isn't she a cutie pie & perfect for Easter or any other time tbh.
I also thought I would colour the bunny brown as you tend to see lots of them coloured white & well the last time I went Pets At Home there were lots of brown ones ;-)

Ok dies used are from Noor Design Uk & are as follows............
0163 - Swirl Leaf die (one of my faves)

Well I think thats it, this bag is actually on its way to Florida now..........hopefully nearly there by now. Fingers crossed Christine likes it IRL........have allso popped something else in there but will show you another day as Christine hasnt seen it yet ;-)

Ok I'm away now as its nearly midnight & time for my beddy byes as more decorating tomorrow lol.

Thank you for stopping by it means so much.
Tatty bye, take care my lovelies mmwah.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxxxxxxxxxx
