Good morning all you lovelies out there we have a gorgeous day up here again. We actually had 2 hours of rain yesterday the first for.....well it seems a long time lol.....we've been spoilt with all the fabulous sunshine.
Anyway onto my creation & today is Saturday & you know what that means yayyyyy its CES Challenge time & this week its my turn & I chose a photo inspiration which of course you can interpret however you wish....whether it be the colours or 1 particular colour or the gingham....the choice is yours. Pop over to here to look at the piccy as this post is already photo heavy lol.
I decided to decorate another gift bag only this time this is a propper gift bag & so is bigger & has handles....these are fab actually & I really enjoyed making this. Will put recipe ingredients at the bottom.
I tried something a little different & punched some holes into red card & then crocheted into the holes...what do you think peeps??
The spray of flowers & the leaves are cut out with my Marianne die.
I have used a fabulous stamp which I'm ashamed its took me a while to ink up. She is of course 'Penpal' by the fabulous artist Elisabeth Bell. This was originally a Sugar Nellie image but now miss bell has released them herself as clear stamps......I sooooo love her images & this I adore.
She is coloured with Copics & I paper-pieced her blouse & headband with pink gingham.
Last piccy the bag in full with a tag tied to the top using Bakers Twine..
I have used 'Madeline' papers by Prima again. The card, doily, gems, love heart, tag, lace & ribbon are from my stash.
The flowers & leaves are an assortment from Crafty Emma's Store & Wild Orchid Crafts.
The smooth white card for the image, the bakers twine, the papers & not forgetting the bag itself you can get from Crafty Emma's Store
The pink & red gingham you can get on the talented Bev's blog.
