Travel : The Stampman Challenge

 This clutch bag was originally going to be my challenge piece for Happydaze, but the lovely Julie Dandy by pure coincidence blogged the very same clutch which she had beautifully altered last week, so I thought this would fit the current Stampman Challenge which is travel instead!

 This had a couple of coats of gesso then I used a variety of lost Coast Designs labels stamps and curious by design Paris stamps. I used water colours for the images then I sealed the bag with ranger glue n seal. I completed the bag stamping and distress the pink paislee mistables trim, added a bow and sparkle to finish.

Happy Crafting XX

OMG, another brilliant piece, fantastic stamping and I love the colour combo. That vintage looks so fits the bag, stunning!

Oh My Goodness I am struck speechless (once again). I love handbags, love anything Parisian so you can just guess how much I love your clutch.
Did you up-cycle an old clutch?
This is perfection.

This is lovely. What kind of material is the bag made of and is it easy to stamp on? I haven't done much on fabric but keen to try it.

Wow ! Your project is absolutely gorgeous ! Can I ask how you stamped onto the fabric without it smudging ? Thanks for joining us at The Stamp Man. Sue C x

This is beyond gorgeous! I loved Julie's one too, and now the clutch has gone up again but I will get one next time I place an order. Would love to make one for my SIL's birthday. If mine is half as good as yours I will be happy,
