Graph'It Marker Challenge - Altered Kraft Bag

Morning. Sorry for the lack of posts recently but life has got the in way of my creating.

There's another challenge this week over on the Graph'It marker blog and this week it's Christmas (I know, I know it's far too early but as I've been making Christmas cards since mid June then the least you can do is keep me company!). Remember, you don't need to use Graph'It markers to enter (although obviously we'd love it if you did) and you can win a fabulous Graph'It prize.

This was sample that I made for the launch of the Tatty Twinkles Christmas Collection by Tattered Lace. Sadly she never got sent off as I just ran out of time before the post deadline. It seems a shame to not show her off, so I thought as she was coloured up and ready to be made into a project I'd use her for this weeks inspiration piece.

I stamped the image onto some Ultimate Graphic Paper and then coloured her in with my Graph'It makers. Initially I used a circular die to cut around her, but then decided she needed something prettier, so I fussy cut her out and mounted her onto a doily. Now the fab thing is, if you're not a stamper you can buy her in the form of a collection on a MCS CD which is packed with not only Tatty Twinkles but loads of papers and Stationery (in fact that's where the lush papers are from).

I was then a case of cutting the papers, lace, ribbon and bead trim to fit on the Kraft bag. The whole thing is pulled together with the addition of a wooden snowflake, kraft snowflakes, gems, buttons and oodles of glitter glue.

Thanks for stopping by today.
