Cherry Blossom Baggie

It's Sunday, which for me usually means that 'get-ready-to-go-back-to-work' day.  But next week, I'm off on hols for the half term break, so today feels like a proper day off.  I had that flu bug that's been going around a couple of weeks ago, and still don't feel that I'm firing on all cylinders at the moment.  I'm hoping that a week off work will recharge the batteries and I'll be back to normal soon.

Because I've not been feeling 100%, I've not managed to get a card made for today, but I do have another little project to share with you.  The Stamp Basket stocks the Saturated Canary rubber stamps and I've been playing with one of my favourites from the new release which is Cherry Blossom.

I've stamped it onto a cotton baggie and coloured it with mainly purple marker pens. I added some sparkly accent with my Sakura Stardust gel pens, and then decorated it with matching purple embellishments.

Colouring on the cotton is really difficult as the ink spreads out over the fibres, but I don't think she's turned out too bad.

Hopefully you will agree....

I've sewn ribbon around the top edge, added a crocheted flower with a button centre, a couple of die cuts and some liquid pearls.

Here's a close up of the image. You'll see the ink did run quite a lot, but it has still made a pretty little gift bag.
