Gift bags

Vintage at I am roses

It’s 1st of July which means it’s time for the new challenge at I am roses challenge blog. This month’s theme is extra difficult for me, it’s VINTAGE!
I made a gift bag using Afternoon Tea Tilda from Little London collection. I colored her with brown shades of Distress Markers. When I completed the bag It was vintage for me, but when I showed her to my (vintage only) friend she was like: not enough distressing, not enough brown, too girly …… well If I compare her with my other cards, it’s vintage! lol
The challenge this week is to recycle something (repurpose an item). I’ve had that charm for some time now and it originally had a picture of a lady in garden in it, which I didn’t really like. I took it out and cut a raspberry from Maja design paper (Coffee in the arbour) and placed it inside and covered it with some crackle paint.

 Flowers used on this project:

  • Mixed Brown Color Cherry Blossoms – S3-827
  • Soft Brown Short Paper Flowers Spray – SP1-148 
  • White Puffy Paper Flowers – R22-15
  • White Mulberry Paper Flowers – R5-15
  •  White Roses – R77-15

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
  • stamps: Afternoon Tea Tilda (Little London coll., 2013), New York, Postmark (With love coll., 2012)
