"Think you can't change the world? Too late, you already have. It was changed for the better the minute you were born. There are more people than you can imagine who will never be the same because they came in contact with you, if only for a fleeting moment."

Gift bag - Poppies and roses ++ :)

I have another DT I also just love being on, and that is the Prairie Fairy Designs team! :)

Today, I found this beautiful image, which is a new release, on Roberta's blog. I just had to make something with it! I'm a papercraft addict, indeed!.... I printed the image on aquarelle paper; Canson 220 g/m2. I coloured it with distress inks - my first try with a digi image and distress inks. And I don't have a laser printer!! Well, you can see my result. I'm quite happy with it, actually. I just had a great time making this. :)

The design paper is a Bo Bunny paper. Roses from Kort og Godt, Seam binding ribbon in two different colours - both lightly coloured here and there with pink distress ink. The roses had a touch of ink, too. The glass pebble embellishment with the woman's face, is a Prima product. The yellow sheer ribbon was bough tin a local store. Distressed edges; I used Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

The image is framed with a Spellbinders frame. I have made my own touch to it, as you can see.

The white flower is a Petaloo product.

And then; just one more photo! :

Simple on the other side. I recycled a paper bag I got in the mail when I ordered something online. It's a solid paper bag, thicker than the ones I usually use for my decorated gift bags :)

I enter this into these challenges:

Have a great new week, it's Monday tomorrow! :)
I appreciate your visit and your comments - thank you so much!
Hugs, Hege

This is just awesome, Hege! Gorgeous job on coloring the poppies and pairing them up with beautiful papers and embellishments. I'm trying to figure out how I can use this image for our challenge this week - doesn't really fit, but I REALLY want to use it - LOL!!

LOL :D I'm sure you can make a card sutable for the next theme with these poppies! :) Can't wait to see your result! You inspire me! Thanks to you, I have all this seam binding ribbon to add up to my projects - I'm happy I found out where to buy it!
