A warm welcome to all of you here. I have a cool'n' fun project to share with you today. If you are wondering at the title…it’s all about“FRIENDS” at AnythingBut A Card Challenge Blog this month. Anything your heart desire keeping friendship in mind…isn’t that cool. So hop over to see some amazing inspirations every week .
Here’s what my heart desired..In my dictionary, a girl’s best friends are bags and shoes, lol! At least I have a fetish for both…how about you???
…And a good friend is one who understands your crazy creative needs and here’s what my friend gave me on my birthday.
A lovely Jute sling bag with a lot of scope for alteration! Now that’s what I call a friend, lol!
I decided to give the bag “my touch” and this is what I did to it.
I used my new Prima Bloom girl stamp and DI to color up that blank patch on the bag!
I stamped the image on canvas cloth, fuzzy cut her and colored with DI. I did not color the flowers intentionally and neither was I worried about the colors from the hair spreading to the flowers, lol! cos they were going to be covered with some lovely blooms! I then sealed the colors with a liberal spray of varnish...she was going to take the wear and tear of the bag, you see!
It’s just amazing how the die cuts thru layers of fabric like butter! I made all these flowers just in just one roll of the die!
Some lovely wooden buttons add beauty to the flowers and these in turn adorn the lovely girl! I was quite happy with the way it looked at the moment but wait, It just got over so fast! I have to add something more and here it is.
I made a shabby pillow charm to be hung from the sling. I used some torn denim fabric to make this. Stamped a quote on tissue with white embossing powder and then stuck it to the little pillow and hand stitched it all around!
The bloom girl just added that magic touch to the bag and she was ready to see the world with me!
I had a great time doing this and hope you liked it. Thank you so much for stopping by and would love to read what you have to say about this and don’t forget to play along at Anything But A Card Challenge Blog for the “FRIENDSHIP” challenge this month. See ya there…
