May Your Day Be Special

Hello and a wonderful weekend. I think i mentioned this week that i have made some little inexpensive gift ideas for Mothers Day? Well, how about using some small paper bags alter those and add some garden seeds in it? I added with my Stampin up Tab punch some tags were you can pull the garden seed bags out and i hand wrote "love" and "grows" to the tabs. I hate my handwriting. I was bummed that i was not able to stamp the words :-)
This project is created for this weeks challenge on the Copic Creations blog! The task for the next 2 weeks is to show some Purpule/Flower creations. :-) pretty easy right? The liclac colors i have used are: BV000, BV01, BV02, BV13, YG06, YG23, Y35

Stamps: Tilda and sentiment from the Chasing Butterfly Collection 2009
Papers: Crate paper "Kaitleen"
Other: Crop a dile, pop up glue dots, Liquid Pearls, Stickles, small paper bags, Prima Marketing: roses and swirls, Martha Stuart: fond leaf punch, arched lattice punch, Stampin up: tab punch, tag, lilac mesh material i got from Carole! Thank you sweetie xx
Edit to add: i was just off to comment back on your comments and dear JennK asked me a question.. and since today's posting is about Copic Coloration i thought i just copy and paste my answer here into my posting as well: you know i am not that happy with my dark hair lol so i am going to order more Copic markers - as it would help hahaha.. sometimes iam happy the way it turns out with the colors i have. i think it is all about the day i color my images in. currently i use for the dark hair Warm Grey Copic Sketch. At the moment i have W0, W2, W3, W4, W5 and W7. However i think it still does look a tick too grey.. so i am going to order W9 to make it even darker. I never leave ANY white areas on my hair ( i have them myself lol).. what appears to be white is the color W0 and W2 does this help you?hugs Claudia
The step by step instructions how to re-create the bag i am going to show tomorrow. Hugs and love
