Magical Monday - Box/Bag/Container

This week over at TMITA/PCC the challenge is brought to us by Kim McDonald. The challenge was to make some kind of container, box or something that would hold or contain candy or something like that. I love making other things outside of cards, so I thought I would do a set again this week. I have to say this project photographed really goofy in the color way. Have you ever had one of those projects where the colors that show up in the photograph really aren't the true colors of your actual project is in real life! Well, that is the way this bag photographed and it drives this perfectionist nut-so! The flower looks an odd green, but really matches much better then it reflects here and my giraffe here on the bag looks more bluish purple then purple. Really look at the giraffe on the bag and then look at the giraffe on the card! Both colored with the same colors, but yet they look like they were not. I think that purple on the green must bring out more of the blues in the color for whatever reason, so I just gave up and this is what you get, photograph wise! :O)

So, anyway..... I had these little bags from the dollar store and so I used one as a template for this bag. I covered the handles with this lovely fuzzy yarn for some fun texture (love texture!) and interest. I colored my image with my Bic Mark-its and then added some colored pencil as well. The PP is from my friend Ami and it is made by Prima (both on the card and bag). OK.. this picture of this bag is REALLY driving me crazy because of how odd the colors look and I almost didn't want to post it, I think I want to replace the flower with a big red one as well!! LOL.... But truly in real life it looks more like the card! OH WELL....





Well, that's it for this week, come back later this week I have some other cards to post with some other images from my store. So, as you go through your day "Think Love".
