White Rabbit - Bag of Choccies
Gooooood morning...... ! I hope today is a good one for you. Welcome to today's Monday Blog Hop from Queen Kat Designs. There's great excitement this week as myself and the other members of the DT have been 'playing' with the new release stamps for the month of June. All the new stamps will be in the Store from Wednesday 2 June, so you can get them for yourself. You should have arrived here via the lovely Lara's Blog, if not I'd better send you back to the beginning on the QKD Blog so you don't miss out on any of the fabulousness that's on show today.
This week we have all been busy creating many different projects as the theme for the DT is 'anything but a card'. I decided to create a box/bag to hold some chocolate bars and I used the lovely new White Rabbit Mermaid stamp - isn't she sweet? I just love the caterpillar on the left, smoking his hookah and blowing smoke rings into the air and how exotic are those flamingos!
These extra shots show the 3D aspects which aren't obvious from the main picture.
I created the box/bag front and back using a Marianne Designs die in my Cuttlebug, the swirls die is part of the same set. The dark blue layer was cut with a nestabilities large scallop circle die and between the two outer layers I sandwiched a simple three sided box.
I coloured the lovely White Rabbit image in shades of pink and blue with Copics and ProMarkers, adding touches of Spica Glitter pen, Glossy Accents and Stickles. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon for the handles was from my stash. A couple of wrapped chocolate bars popped inside the box was the finishing touch for this little gift.
I do hope you've enjoyed your visit to my blog today and that you are enjoying hopping along with QKD. I'm now going to send you on your way to Kimme's blog - she has a fabulous project to share with you. Hope you'll come back and join in the Hop again next Monday when I'll be bringing you another of the new June release stamps - and don't forget the rest of the DT are doing their Hop tomorrow, just start again at the QKD Blog. Do visit the Store after you complete the Hop today, who knows what bargains you might just find there!
