Just Add Ink Challenge # 10 - Colour

Designer Bag and Matching Card

This week at Just Add Ink we have a lovely colour combo to inspire your creative juices. Hope you can join in the fun as we head towards the Easter Break.

I purchased this awesome Designer Bag (Haute Tote) template from Creations by AR. I'm sure you will see it appear in future posts as it makes such a gorgeous gift bag and was really easy to make.

I added stitching using my sewing machine. Don't look too closely as I haven't sewn on cardstock for ages!

This Week's Colour Combo

A View of the Inside Pocket

I can't afford the real thing so this will have to do!

The card is the same size as the Fresh Cut Notes.

Pop the card (or set of cards) inside for a cute little gift.

This bags comes complete with a little 'coin purse'.

I really enjoyed making this because I fell in love with that little bag the moment I saw it on Splitcoast Stampers and the colours for this week's challenge were certainly my 'cup of tea' (or in my case, the right brew of coffee). My Hostess at tonight's Workshop will receive this as a special thank you gift.

Here's the Project Recipe:
Stamp Set: Rustic Rooster (Level 2 Hostess Set)
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Cameo Coral
Cardstock: Close to Cocoa and Blush Blossom (Textured), Kraft
Accessories: Haute Tote Template, Kraft Taffeta Ribbon, Silver Brads (Standard and Jumbo Sizes), Bella Bleu DSP, 1/2 " Circle Punch, Dimensionals, Word Window Punch, clasp and split rings from my jewellery making stash

Hope you enjoyed browsing through my post. Make sure you check out the other DT's creations. It's so great to 'work' alongside an enthusiastic and talented bunch of crafters.

I can't wait to see what our fellow 'bloggers' come up with for this week and you can be certain that I won't need a pair of sunnies to look through the entries for THIS Colour Challenge! (cough cough!) LOL :)

Been meaning to tell you how great this project is all week. I love it. I want to try it except I don't think it would last long with all the rain around up here. It is just awesome.
