A second gift bag ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. Last night I suddenly realised it was the end of the month already so I had to take some photographs to get a couple of projects entered into challenges before they end, lol, always late to the party I am, anyway here is one of my projects …
I love the blue and Kraft!

I loved creating the first one and this one was even more fun to create. No stamps were used to decorate this bag: I seem to be doing that more these days. I attached a stencil to Kraft card and used Versamark ink pad and clear embossing powder which I heat set. The bauble panel and the chipboard bauble are really old stash so it was good to use those up. I coloured the dry embossed bauble using my Spectrum Aqua pens, the bauble was coloured with Sakura Sparkle pen as was the wooden snowflake. I added white to the chipboard one using my Picket Fence Distress spray. I coloured a piece of white card with my AquaTints and once dry I attached the Penny Black stencil and drew around the mistletoe details, I then used a damp paintbrush to drag the colour inwards. The berries were coloured with a Sakura sparkle pen. I then free hand cut the pointed bauble and added platinum Stickles to the hanger of that bauble. I coloured white card snippets with AquaTints and once dry I die cut the borders.
I played with my Bakers twine, ribbons, and Christmas embellishments and the final touch of the Picket Fence Distress spray. Another bag created and a few more are required so I have to create more soon.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
