A Summer's Ball for Crafty Individuals

 Just a quick post showing a little bag I made before we went away using two of my favourite stamps C1 - 320 and CI - 331
from Crafty Individuals I painted the bag with a couple of coats of gesso which I tinted a pale greeny blue. Then used a crafters workshop mask and some versamagic chalk inks for the background. Stamped onto some gessoed fabric, coloured and stitched around the edges before glueing to the bag with matte medium, more matte medium to seal, then finishing touches of mint dyed lace and pink velvet ribbon.

Dylan the Doggie, is doing well, back to his old mischievous self, but now strutting about with a fetching lampshade collar around his neck, the little bag would be the perfect accessory for him as they are nearly the same shade but I wouldn't want to give him gender identity issues LOL!

Happy Crafting XX

Hello Paula
A most beautiful Stamped Bag. I am very interested in the process, of painting the bag with Gesso first, I have just made a fabric creation and experimented and got myself in a Gesso mess!!!! I have since realised what I did wrong. Interesting that you used Chalk ink too. I have learnt something today.

What a relief that Dylan is feeling more like himself, that is such good news.
Your bag - I am sorry but I am in need of a lady like swoon. Everytime you create a bag it is exquisite but this is at a level all of its own.

Dylan sounds a poppet and I am really pleased he is nearly back to his old self.
