Decorated Zip Bag - AALLandCreate

Welcome, today I am showcasing something a little different, a decorated zip bag using my Layered Grunge and Feathered Bloom stamps from AALLandCreate.
I really enjoyed creating this, something a little different from a card. I began by adding touches of Distress Oxide Inks to the background to give a touch of shading. I applied the inks to a non-stick craft sheet, spritzed with water and then mopped up the beads of ink and dried with my heat too. I did add a piece of paper on the inside just in case the ink seeped through to the inside.
I stamped my feathers onto a piece of calico fabric, stamping using a MementoLuxe Inkpad.
I added stamping from my A4 stamp set using a MementoLuxe Inkpad. I also added some numbers from my Date It stamp set using Archival Ink.
I also included some delicate splatters of paint and some buttons and micro beads for added texture and interest.
I also included some vintage lace and a couple of vintage pen nibs.
I applied texture paste over Autour de Mwa's stencil, number #21 to give a further layer of texture to my piece.
I added second generation stamping to my design as I did not want a bold black so that it did not over power my design.
I love how this came together and it is perfect to house my pens and pencils.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

These are the stamps I used in my creation.
