Lovely Gift Bag

Hi everyone, this week the Ann Butler Design Team is sharing projects created with products from Ann Butler Designs, Rita Barakat and Lisa Jimenez. 


Ann Butler's Crafter's Ink by Clearsnap  - Berry and Canyon
Rita Barakat's Art Foamies - Hot Air Balloon
Lisa Jimenez Colorique Ink by Clearsnap - Honey Bee and Wisteria

I began by inking the Hot Air Balloon with both Berry and Canyon Inks.  This is a large stamp that I knew would be perfect for a gift bag.  Once stamped, I then fussy cut both pieces.

I placed several drops of Honey Bee and Wisteria Colorique on a gift bag, then used a paint brush to create the streaky background.  Colorique Ink is blendable so where the colors overlap, a third color came to life.

Colorique works on a variety of surfaces so I selected a metal charm and painted it with Honey Bee.  Before it dried, I rubbed off the color as I wanted the color to soak into the letter spaces.  Finally I painted Wisteria on the charm and heat set it.

Next, I inked some ribbon with Berry Ink.

Then I used my Bowdabra to create a ribbon.

To finish,  I matted the hot air balloon with cardstock and adhered to the bag.   I tied the ribbon to the handles and added the charm.  I also used Berry Ink around the edges of the gift bag.

I hope you enjoyed my project and will try these lovely supplies.
Thanks for stopping by today.
