A quick project

This week is running very fast and I have not been able to create as much as I would like to. I am also preparing my first "cardmaking" class for Saturday. I am invited to one of my neighbours and are preparing some projects for her friends - since they are rather new to this. It will be a lot of fun and I hope they will enjoy what I am about to show them. I mean - I have not been doing this myself for that long - I think it is a year now in October. Time flies...

Anyway - here is a very fast altered gift paper bag that I have made for my neighbour.

DP from SUs fall/winter collection. Text stamp from SU. Sugar Nellie "Picking Apples" stamp coloured with SU markers on aquarell paper. This time - not using any stickles ;-))) Highlighted with white gel pen. Shade around the girl is made with Sahara Sand marker from SU. Ribbon and pearl from stash. Wanted it to be a rather "clean" bag if you know what I mean and to bring out those fall colours. It's really dark this time of year here in Sweden - so the light is not the best on this pic.
Well - hope you'll like it.

PS. I have sent in my 3 projects to the DT Call. It was really hard to choose some, but I decided to pick 3 "oldies" that showed my style - i.e I like to draw - if the stamp is not available - soft colours and warm colours. Well - that's all I am going to say. Please continue to keep your fingers crossed for me.
