Theme - Anything but a card.

For this project I had already coloured an image but not known what to do with it, so thought it would be ideal for this challenge.

The image was one of the sweetpea rubber stamps by Caron Vinson who is quite well known for her fairy images.  I coloured her with copic and spica pens adding a lace stickles to the wings.  I love this lace stickles glitter glue as it gives a frosty feel to it.

At first I had planned to make a tag but couldn't get the look I wanted so decided to use on a gift bag as an altered art item.  Luckily the tones of the gift bag and design worked well with the image.

I used a Magnolia die for the flourishes and Marianne dies for the poinsettias.  I create the feeling I was looking for I added pearls and sparkly gems for a real girly gift bag.  I added more bling by adding more stickles (crystal ice) to the poinsettias and dress.

Finally to give it a lavish feel I added a hugh bow.

Hope you like this creation and I have inspired you to try something different.  Don't forget to check out the other DT's blogs to see what they have come up with.

Best wishes,
