Colouring on Canvas - gift bag

Hello my dears,  I've been missing in action for a few days due to my adorable twin Grandsons having their usual school holiday sleep over with us.  Lots of fun, treats, baking, playing and dvd watching until the wee hours.  It was great fun!!!  but I'm oh so glad they are home now. lol 

I spent yesterday with my darling Daughter at a crop where we got lots of pages finished in our scrapbooks, made some wonderful new friends and had lots of giggles going down memory lane with pictures from the past.

Anyway I'm here to show you another of my Canvas gift bags.  This one has been made for a monthly swap group and is winging it's way to a very sweet lady who sent me the most wonderful altered photograph frame.  I've filled it with little goodies which I'm sure she will enjoy.

Tilda with small gift is from the Falling Leaves collection, she has been stamped with memento cocoa ink and then coloured with Copics.  The butterfly stamp is a Unity stamp from the Webster page collection called Dream Big and has been coloured with Copics as well.  The sentiment is a Lili of the Valley stamp.  Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The lace has been hand stitched onto the bag and the sweet pearls and gems have been added using my Professional Touch gem heat glue gun thingy that I bought last year. This is the first time I've used it but I love the effect.

Anyway enough from me for now.  I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday and that the sun is shining for you where ever you are.

I would like to enter the Following Challenges.

Hi Suzi, the canvas bag that you have decorated is so darn cute!! I love it! I had to look at your beautiful coloring of Tilda and the butterflies on the canvas very closely! It is great that the Copic Markers don't bleed. The lace on the edge of the bag is so sweet! I think the next time I go to Michaels I'm going to pick up some of these little bags. Thank you for the inspiration!
Big Hugs,

Cathy Lee said...

Hi, Suzi. I just love your bag. I'm a little chicken about coloring on anything but paper. Is that silly or what? LOL Anyway, your canvas bag is just adorable and I love the Tilda stamp you chose. So cute.
Sounds like you had a wonderful time with the grandkids and your daughter at the crop. I love doing that.
Sorry I hadn't come by sooner but we are getting ready for these horses and it has taken all my free time.
