Inky Gift Bag and Coordinating Tag

Good Friday morning everyone, it's time for some Inky Impressions inspiration.  Today I want to share with you this cute gift bag with coordinating tag I made using this adorable image from Inky Impressions.  This image is called "Marleigha's Ornament Dance" and you can find it here at the Inky Impressions store.  For this project I started with a paper bag, I just trimmed some of the top off and cut the edge with scalloped scissors.  I covered both front and back with cardstock and patterned paper and inked the edges with distress ink.
For my image, I started by stamping her with black ink on white cardstock and colored her with Prismacolor color pencils.  After I cut the shape with the Spellbinders' die I used the die and shaded the edges of the embossed area with some distress ink.
Here is a closeup of the coordinating tag, I stamped the sentiment, it's called "Winter Fun Scalloped Circle Sentiment", on white cardstock with black ink, cut with scissors, I shaded the area with the word "FUN" with distress ink and added some stickles for a touch of sparkle.
I hope you enjoyed my project today, thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day.
