Hello again blogging friends. It's raining here today, so I guess I won't be working in my flower beds right now. I'll show you what I made last night instead.
I used a sweet little image from Sassy Cheryl called Callie's Relaxing Bath. I just love this little girl. Her braids pinned up, her skinny little arms. I can imagine that she spent all day playing outside at Grandma's and Grandma is giving her a bath before bed. She is making a mess isn't she?
I colored her with my Prismacolor pencils. I wanted a very blond look for her hair. I think it turned out pretty good. I added some rhinestones to the corners. A little bling is fun :)
I used the great sketch from Truly Scrumptious. I think you can see that the panel the image is on is flipping up a bit. That's because . . . .
. . . . I made it a small card. And I did that because . . . .
. . . . it's all mounted on a gift bag I made. There are some great tutorials out there for "box in a bag." I didn't use any of them because I wanted my bag to be a certain size. Basically the bottom is a short-sided box and the sides are wrapped with more paper. I wanted my 6x6 sketch to fit on the front of the bag, plus leaving room for handles at the top. I also wanted to be able to fit some bath products in there for a gift. My seam binding and flowers are from Wild Orchid. (always) I had fun making this project. I don't know who will get it eventually, but I'll enjoy looking at it in my studio for the time being.
I am entering my creation in the following challenges:
Sassy Cheryl's - Anything Goes
Truly Scrumptious - Sketch
Papertake - Water, Water Everywhere
Creative Inspirations - purple, green and blue
Paper Shelter - Buttons & Bows
I think that's about it. Thanks for taking a peek.
Blessings & Hugs
