First gift bag ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week was a good one and your weekend is going well. I’ve been playing with that Penny Black bauble stamp again, lol, and here is the end result …

All ready to be filled
Achieved some nice depth on this one
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges 
Allsorts Challenge #391 Anything Christmas
Crafty Ribbons Challenge #176 Christmas with Ribbon/s
I used three stocking brads, three poinsettias & I stamped the bauble three times
Spectrum Noir Facebook Challenge Anything Goes Optional Christmas/Winter
Stamps & Stencils Challenge Gift Bags or Boxes or Tags
The Ribbon Girl Challenge November Any Image Goes Any Creation

Once again I used a lot of snippets to create this gift bag. I had a snippet of white stamping card left over from yesterday’s card and after I coloured the background with a weak Spectrum Noir AquaTints wash I used a Spectrum Aqua pen to colour the stamp and then stamp it in position, three times again. Delving through my box of snippets I found some red card and patterned paper. I glued the patterned paper onto the gift bag and attached the bauble stamped piece of card onto a snippet of red pearl card. The next step was to die cut the flowers, the leaves and the half doily.

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
