Hooked onto handbag cards


I downloaded the Templates file from the Pink Petticoat website and just fell in love with the handbag. I looked at the inspiration section of the website and saw a gorgeous handbag by Designer Stephanie Jo Mayne, and I could not resist having a go at it. The photo shows the bag I have made, but the design idea is totally Stephanie's and not mine. I wanted to do this design particularly as I felt it would really test all of my skills and it sure did. I am so proud of it, it sits on my dressing table - goodness knows how long I will leave it there - probably until I make another card I love as much.
The main bag paper is PP and is actually black and white, but I coloured all of the flowers with Lyra Watercolour crayons which are my favourite find at the moment. I just love this hobby, it enables me to mix my love of art with creating really lovely cards for myself and my friends.
