TOMIC 24 Use a paper bag and get inspired by the photo


Hi everyone! A new challenge starts over on TOMIC today which is to use a paper bag together with an inspiration photo. I've decorated a kraft paper gift bag using the gorgeous Ribbon Tilda (love her plaited pigtales!), the Christmas love holly and the sweet snowflakes stamps from the Sweet Christmas Dreams collection. The bag has been stamped and embossed with the holly and snowflakes stamps and Tilda has been coloured with pencils on kraft card. I made a border for the image using the Swirly Lace doohickey die and die cut some little horses to go along the bottom. To decorate I made some shabby chic flowers from Magnolia paper, some roses from Bazzil card, die cut snowflakes and decorative elements. 

I hope you can join us for the challenge, as always there's a gorgeous prize on offer from Magnolia.

Enjoy your day!

Hi Chris!
OMG!!! another gorgeous creation.
Your coloring on the kraft card with pencils is outstanding. I am going to have to have a go at this. I love how you stamped the background with that Christmas stamp. What a great idea. I love the use of white. It really brightens up the brown and those flowers look awesome.
Gotta get me one of those paper bags.
Hugs Maz
