A new year, a new set of stamps to work with from Creative Expressions. This month we are working with two sets and today I am using the BEJEWELLED BAG from the singles range.
The background has been coloured with Antique Linen Distress Ink, I simply swiped the inkpad across the card and then spritzed with water and continued to apply the ink until I was happy with the depth of colour.
I then placed the Blossom Mask over the inked background and applied Broken China Distress Ink over the mask to add flowers to the backdrop. The Bejewelled Bag has been stamped with Broken China Distress Ink and shading adding by simply using a water brush to drag the colour into the shaded areas. I have also added Cosmic Shimmer Pearl PVA Glue Teal to the bag to represented the beaded areas. 'Just For You' has been stamped with Cornflower Blue Archival Ink, cut out and coloured with  Broken China Distress Ink and then added to the card. To add further dimension and interest I have also added a bag charm embellishment. I have applied Cosmic Shimmer Beeswax to the edges of my card and then applied Patina Gilding Wax around the edges.
To add further interest and dimension I added a dimensional bloom to the top of my card cut from Foundations Teal Card and beige card using the Spellbinders Aster Flower Topper die, adding a Vintage Metal Embellishment to the centre and twine to the back of my flower for added texture.
Don't forget it is "Fun Time Friday" once again on the Creative Expressions Facebook page, simply leave a comment and you could be in with a chance of winning a fabulous prize.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

This is so pretty and I can imagine that stamp being used for so many different ages, from the youngest to teenage through to a more mature woman.
