Hello my lovelies how are you all? Are you ready for the weekend..........my favourite time of the week as I get to spend it with my family.....perfect!!
So I am back today with something I made at the beginning of the week, no its not a card either, yea check me out lol, its about time I stopped being lazy & got out of my rut.
So I made a gift bag........I chopped one of the plain brown gift bags in half (I can make another gift bag out of the other half) to make it a smaller gift bag, perfect for jewellery or anything 6inches or smaller.
I used the top half to make mine so I made a bottom for it & added handles.
Perfect for my favourite 6x6 papers, can you guess what they are??? Yep Prima 'Lyric' I seriously cant get enough of this pad. I even found the chipboards & letters & labels to match woo hoo.
As always all edges have been inked with Walnut distress ink.
I added Prima 'Lyric' flowers on top of 'Fresh Foliage' die, which I covered in 'Shabby Pink' Fran-Tage which you can now also get here. The butterfly is a Prima lyric chipboard. I also added Prima Lyric label underneath a Melissa Frances 'Edwardian Frame'.
I also decorated the back & attached a large tag...........there is certainly plenty of room to write a personal message ;0)
The image is called 'Hannah' & of course is by Hannah Lynn & she is available at Crafts & Me Store as a digi image. I coloured her with Copics.
Colours used are.......
E11, E21, E00, E000, R20
E29, E27, E23, E21
R85, R83, R81, RV10
C3, C1, C00
B00, B000, B0000
I lay her onto a frame which also got the Fran-Tage treatment ;0)
I insert eyelets to insert my handles to make it stronger. I painted them with gesso. I also indserted an eyelet on the tag which I than added a key charm, painted up with gesso & a Melissa Frances
'Vintage Glass Button' which really are soooooooo beautiful IRL.
The lace is Melissa Frances & the pink spotty ribbon is East Of India ribbon, I have quite a bit of East Of India ribbon which I sadly neglect.........they even have their own storage in my craft room, all other ribbons go somewhere else lol.
Thats it from me, I didnt get to do any blog hopping last night as I had a bad head, think a visit to the optician might be needed urgh......I have a thing about anyone going near my eyes so I kinda get freaked out lol.
I will be round later though after my family have been ;0)
Thank you sooooooo much for all your lovely comments, they make my day :0)
Squishy hugs & funky love to all mmwah xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
