A gift bag and tag - I have some knitwear to go postal this week, and I wanted to put the washing instructions on the back of a tag.
Bag is the Bag-a-lope from Resources. I covered the front with a sheet of old paper from a book, on which I used the Gesso Resist technique, also from Resources. Inspired by Nature stamped with Versamark on the gessoed page and embossed with clear EP. I then sponged with Spiced Marmalade, Shabby Shutters and Scattered Straw distress inks. Stamped a flourish around the edges with black ink and added some butterflies. The bag is tied with natural raffia.
Tag is a Sizzix die cut from a scrap of card made using Tim Holtz's plaid technique. It's from Christmas 09, so I don't remember what inks I used. Sizzix partridge, a Prima and a punched black leaf, along with faux stitching round the edge.
