Delightful Sketches and Challenges

This fortnight's challenge at Delightful Sketches and Challenges is LOVE.

Our sponsor is Stamp and Create who are offering a prize of a $15 store gift certificate.

I've made a little bag for this challenge. I made up a template with 12 x 12" card and then cut out heart shapes for the handles. I'm usually a card maker, so my bag isn't as good as a lot of them around in blogland, but I'm hoping to practise more with this sort of thing, and will hopefully get much better at it.

I've used Buzzles in Love by Digital Delights, coloured with Pro-markers. I added Pinflair glaze to the bees hoping it would make them shiny like Glossy Accents does, but it just seemed to make the colours run a bit. The Valentine tickets are also digis, but I'm not sure where from (if anyone recognises them please let me know so I can credit the right person). I've added a swirl from the bee with heart shaped pearls. The flowers and lace round the heart handles are from my stash. I've stamped inside the bag with red versafine using a text Love stamp. Also used were Stickles on the bees' wings and some Distress inks.

Challenges I'm entering this into:
1. Treehouse Thursday Challenge #35 - Colour Combo - red, pink and white
2. ABC Challenge - N is for NEW stash - (new digi images, and heart pearls)
4. Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 13 - Hearts and Romance
5. The Corrosive Challenge 49 - All you need is love
I'll be back later with my DT card for this week's C.R.A.F.T. Challenge which is Love/Valentine.
