Lillyrose The Dragon gift bag

A friend of mine lended me this stamp a while ago to stamp some images, but I never got the chance to use one. While I was thinking of making an unusual Valentine's day gift bag I thought of this one. I didn't use red, because I simply can't make cards in red. Red, yellow, orange, green ... not my colours!

For this bag I used:
  • colors: TH distress ink markers and distress ink pads
  • ink: archival black
  • watercolor paper: Langton HP 300g
  • design papers: Maja design
  • stamp: Lillyrose The Dragon (Princes and Princesses coll., 2012)
  • die: DooHickey - swirl, bloomy tag, tilda lace
  • white lace
  • purple lace
  • white seam binding ribbon 
  • white paper doily
  • flowers from I am roses, LLC
  • shabby bark hearts
  • shabby pink frantage, pink fragments
  • crackle paint
  • cheesecloth
  • stickles glue (stardust).

I’m entering this card into the following challenges:
  1. Dutch Magnolia lovers: Valentine's day
  2. Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge blog: Stiching
  3. Deep Ocean challenge (TOP 3): Fantasy
  4. A creative romance: Show us some love
  5. Live and love crafts: Love N' lace
Thank you for visiting my blog today! Have fun! t.
