Gift Bag

Hello again,

Well this month there are quite a few of the Christmas challenges encouraging us to spread some glittery cheer around, does it count when I drop some glitter on the Physio’s carpet, after a two and a half hour train trip to get there? I think it must have come out of my shoe ;-))

I used three separate images from Tiddly Inks Digi store Winter Wryn, puppy love and a gift pile from Williow the Christmas Fairy and merged them together to create a Christmas scene, as this was planned to be for a gift bag the images are quite a bit larger than usual and I was able to add my sentiment into a text box directly under the images.

I have had some trouble getting the design papers to stick to the yellow glitter card and I may have to adjust the bag and add more brads to help hold the whole thing together, PVA just doesn't seem to hold well enough, maybe the second coat will have helped.

Here’s a close up of the gift bag:-

and the whole gift bag, I picked up 10 gift bags in various colours from Riot art while they were having a 50% off Sale, I also picked up some plain white and kraft bags at the same time!!

What I used:-

Faber-Castell & Derwent Pencils
