Cherry Blossom Baggie

Hello everyone, it's Annette here again today, but because I've still not been feeling 100% lately (still recovering from that nasty flu bug that's been going around), I've not managed to get a card made for today.  However, I do have another little project to share with you.

The Stamp Basket stocks the gorgeous Saturated Canary rubber stamps and I've been playing with one of my favourites from the new release which is Cherry Blossom.  I've stamped it onto a cotton baggie and coloured it with mainly purple marker pens. I added some sparkly accent with Sakura Stardust gel pens, and then decorated it with matching purple embellishments.

Colouring on the cotton is really difficult as the ink spreads out over the fibres, but I don't think she's turned out too bad.

Hopefully you will agree....

I've sewn ribbon around the top edge, added a crocheted flower with a button centre, a couple of die cuts and some liquid pearls.

Here's a close up of the image. You'll see the ink did run quite a lot, but it has still made a pretty little gift bag.

All items are from The Stamp Basket as follows:
Pop over to The Stamp Basket to see the lovely array of products on offer.

Happy crafting and have a great week.


  1. Wow! Your bag is beautiful, Annette! I love the colours you've chosen and your colouring of Cherry Blossom is lovely - impressionism rocks chez moi!!

  2. Thanks honey, I do like doing these baggies and as Cherry Blossom is one of my favourites of the new Saturated Canary images from your store it would have been rude not to decorate one using her!!! LOL.
