BnW Blog hop is here!!!

Finally it's Monday! I've been waiting for this blog hop and I hope you all have as well.
Again - Elisabeth has done it again - and I'm sure that you all are going to NEED (yes - you'll need them - I can hear it already ;-) all these new cute stamps. So what are we presenting this time - well no cookies - but different ideas for gift wrapping, bags etc.
But before I start to tell you about my project - here's the blog hop order for you - just in case you get lost:
Make sure that you stop by each and one of us - since one lucky winner will be able to win the full set of these stamps! For all details - please read carefully on the BnW blog - so that you don't miss the chance to win these cuties. The stamps will be up for pre-order today as well - so make sure that you order them now.
Well - as for my project I wanted to create a bottle tag/box. We received a lovely template at our local scrapevent - Vänerscrappen (Nov 14th), but I did not have the time to try one then. So of course I thought this would be perfect to go with my card featuring Two Turtle Doves. Of course I filled it with candy and Swiss chocolate (X-mas chocolates with almonds).
I went for a little more vintage style this time on my card - and therefore I also wanted the bottle tag/box to match. I will post the template on the BnW blog later this week - for those of you that would like to try it.
This cute little girl looks very Swedish to me. Why?? - you ask - well - it's because she's wearing a Folklore bonnet. I used to have one - but with roses - when I was a baby girl :-).
As you can see - I went for a distressed look. Coloured her with my copics. The roses were sent to me by my sweet friend Marlene - love them. Chalked around the edges (after using Tim Holtz distress tool) with pine cone + on the flowers.
Looking fwd to hear from you. And now you are off to Iris blog to see what she's been up to!

Anki, this is so georgeous! I love the vintage look you gave your card and bottle holder and the deep warm colors you used. You coloring is so wonderful and you make that image pop out on your card.
Can´t wait to see the bottle holder template since it looks so elegant.

Big hugs to you!

My my.. what an awesome idea Anki!! It is wonderful!! I love vintage look, even though I don't use it often. And the distressing looks great as well. I had fun working with this girl, and yes, I also said while colouring that she looks swedish! :))

Big huggies Anki xx

Stunning... absolutely stunning Anki... Your choice of colors, your vintage look, and that beautiful distressing are perfect! I bet if you look in the dictionary for the word perfection, you will find this post listed there. LOL
