Handbag Challenge - Week #8

Just when I think these challenges can't get anymore challenging....they do! Theresa must be having a blast choosing the handbags. This week, the handbag is Lucky Brand Jeans Diamond Patch Tulip Satchel. The bag is a mixture of velvet, corduroy, canvas, and floral fabrics. It was these textures that were my main inspiration for this project.

A few weeks ago, Kristina gave us a curved template. I used the larger template to help me cut the sides of my card with a curve. I've had sheets of suede paper for years. This was a good opportunity to use these yummy papers. I stamped with the Priceless set on the suede paper with my Blanco Opaque White Dye Ink pad. This was also a good way to used small scraps of designer papers. My paper punch made it easy. The time-consuming part was hand-gathering the polytwill ribbon onto redline tape. You can't see in the photo, but about .5 inches from the top of the card I scored the entire length of the card to get a fold beneath the gathering.

I used my Sakura Gelly Roll white pen to do some faux stitching. What a difference that makes!

I threaded the polytwill ribbon through my button. I used several Zots to make sure it was secured. The sentiment is up on dimensionals.

Thanks for looking!
