Using the Lilac card stock die cut the purse base. Ink the edges of the purse with the Dusty concord distress ink.. Adhere only the purse bottom base together at this stage.  I used double sided tape and wet glue to make this strong. Taking the design paper pad, find the pink toned paper with the shutter, tree and flower print, die cut the lace backgrounds using both the dies from the Rain drops on roses die set. Ink the edges of these die cuts with the dusty concord ink. Lay the purse flat to adhere a lace background on each side of the purse. Stamp, color, then die cut all the images for this project. ( Make sure you have more than enough of the images, there are a lot of layers used. ) For the purse front, adhere the grass to the purse, trimming as you go, making lots of layers. Using two darling images adhere to the foot of the purse with 3d tape. Arrange and tuck the stemmed flowers and leaves at both sides of the purse. Do the same for the back of the purse. The darling has two wing layers. Cut the wings away from the darling image and adhere to the back of the full image. Once all is dry and secure, complete the construction of the purse. Apply a small dot or square Velcro to fasten the purse closure. Add a large leaf cluster and a shaped single flower to one side of the closure. Apply clear drying glue to the foot of both sides of the purse then sprinkle go man go prills on the glue line. Do the same on the darlings dandelion, using the silver lining color for this. To finish, apply star dust and orange peel stickles to the flower centers and grass flowers. Star dust stickles to the wings and toadstool spots.

Aren't these toadstools cute! the stickles on the spots...and what about those wings....all surgery and glittery...made for anyone that is addicted to bling and glitter.

Here's a close up of the darling in the grass

Details of the wild grass placements. Stamp, die cut and colour more than you need, then you can trim them to add lots and lots of layers to the work.

Here you see the colouring, these flowers are so cute. A delight to work with.One can never have enough flowers for projects....You also see the edges are inked, this gives a nice finish for a block coloured card stock.

This sure is a fun collection. Last week the cottage, this week a purse. This purse makes a wonderful gift packaging...sure will make any little sweet heart jump with joy and glee.

Next week more of this collection...till then,
scrappy inky hugs from me...xoxxo
