An INKredible Challenge

AmberINK's current challenge is to wrap it "your way" using their stamps or iPapers. I chose to use two images from their pretty set "Tis the Season" to make a Christmas gift bag.


I paper-pieced the green of the tree with green card stock, then coloured in the trunk and the presents with Sharpies. (The frugal crafter's Copics. ) The bows are coloured with a silver gel pen. The tree garland is silver glass glitter, and of course the tree needed a star on top! I shadowed the snow a bit with Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue ink.

Supplies: white gift bag, white & green cs, SU siver glass glitter, Copics, silver gel pen, Sandylion star sticker, Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue ink, Twinery peapod baker's twine Pin It Now!

Nice! Love the nice clean bag/tag duo. That glitter makes it all extra-festive, too!
Way to play the challenge!

What a fabulous gift bag and tag, Lindsey! I LOVE the glitter on the tree. I thought it was tinsel ribbon!!

Very creative use of the images!! Putting the gifts under the tree is a very original idea. I've seen lots of people use the Amber-girl hanging the ornament, but you're the first to use the gifts, and I think it's an awesome idea! And to use the same image on the tag... perfect!

What a sweet bag! I love the traditional red and green for the holidays and your coloring looks great. Even though I have invested in a handful of Copics, I STILL use my Bic Mark-Its for coloring. That just means we have more $$$ left to buy stamps! Have a great day:)

Cuteness! I love the CAS look on the bag, and of course the coordinating tag is the perfect touch!
