Robin gift bag

Hello lovely peeps.


I found a lovely card on Pinterest by Minna0402 and it inspired me to do something similar with some kraft paper bags that I bought last month for decorating.

First I stamped the snowbird (Stampendous) onto Kraft card with Black Archival Ink and coloured it in with my new Gansai Tambi paints


I used some Artemio stamps and Timber Brown Stazon to add some interest around the edges


and then splattered on white acrylic paint to make it look snowy.
I attached a snowflake charm (Dovecraft) by wrapping white twine around and then matted and layered onto a Kraft bag with red and white card

It's finished off with a Christmassy red bow and some white pine sprig die-cuts (Impression Obsession)

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-

Just now saw this GORGEOUS card - and what a fantastic idea to use it on a bag!!! Love it! Do you by any chance know the name of the Artemio stamp set that you used? Can’t wait to make something similar for the holidays......also a great idea that you made it on kraft paper! Such a talented lady!

Hi Janice, thank you for your lovely comment. I always try to include the names of things I have used in my posts but these Artemio stamps don't have a name. The reference number on the back of the packet is 10001059 if that helps.
Kind regards,
