Everybody Art Challenge - Bags

Good Morning,

Hope you're having a nice Tuesday. It's cold here, but the sun is shining. We're going to head out to a play date for the kids and some mommy chat time today. Very much looking forward to getting out of the house and spending time with a good friend! :)

Before we head out for the day, I have a project to share with you that I made for the Everybody Art Challenge blog. Domi, one of the DT gals, asked Whimsy Stamps to sponsor the challenge this week, which we are very happy to do. The challenge theme is bags. I think it's pretty open to your interpretation as long as you create a bag of some sort. One lucky participant will win a free Whimsy Stamps stamp!

Here is my bag, well to be more accurate, my box in a bag. I used this tutorial on SCS to create the bag and then embellished with stamps and flowers. The bottom of the bag is a box made with Tempting Turquoise cardstock and the bag itself is a piece of Urban Prairie paper from BasicGrey.

I used my Whimsy Duck for the main image, colored him with Copics and framed him using my circle Nestabilities. I used the new Eyelet border punch from SU! to do the bottom detail. The handles are made with the tag punch, jumbo eyelets, and satin ribbon. I also added a Prima flower, button center, and butterfly with gems to finish off this bag.

Not sure what I'll do with it now, but it was super easy to make and I think it's cute. Hope you'll give this challenge a try. Visit Everybody Art for more details.

Happy Stamping! :)
