Wooden Purse





Thank you for swinging by today. The little gift set i show today, was actually made for Magnolia Ink magazine. Make sure to secure your issue :-) i know the DT went over the top with their creations for the launch of the Magnolia magazine. Since i have used on my project the beautiful new Shimmerz Fall paints and Spritz, i have decided to hold this project back and show it today. Make sure to check out Shimmerz blog because you can win the entire set of the new colors!
I have purchased the little wood container at Michaels and painted it with Distress Crackle Paint. Once the paint was completely dried (speeded process up with heat gun) i have added Prima Marketing Felt border and sprayed over the entire project Shimmerz Treasured hymn. The shimmer sits nicely in the cracks and gives the felt a wonderful look. while the spray is drying i have painted all my flowers with several paints.. mixed Antique Lace with Red Wagon to create interest in the center of flowers. Leaves were punched out with Martha Stewart (Twig punch) and just quickly dipped into Mossy Stone paint. Set aside and let dry. Than i started to color my images with Copic Sketch markers and cut the cute little girls out.

After everything was completely dried i have assembled my flowers and added them to the card and the wooden purse. The purse can be filled with little gifts like some markers for a crafting friend or even just some yummy candies. I have made a little matching card, sized just right to fit nicely into the purse.
