Altered Kraft Paper Bag (KBD Aloha Friday Challenge #48 Mid Inspiration)

Happy Friday everyone :-D 

Today I'm posting my mid-inspiration project for ongoing Aloha Friday Challenge at Kitty Bee Designs.

The challenge for this fortnight is #48 - Sew Cute (real/faux stitching).

Our sponsor for this challenge is Dilly Beans Digi Stamps, with an awesome prize for our random winner: 3 digital images of winner's choice.

I made an Altered Kraft Paper Bag, using our sponsor's lovely image 'Crinkles Hearts Framed'. I used real stitches on my project. 

I printed the image on a white cardstock paper and colored it in watercoloring technique, using Distressed Inks and aquarell colored pencil, water and brush. When it was dry, I fussy cut the image and colored edges with black pen.

I printed one more image on Kraft packing paper and glued colored image over it.

I glued a fabric on the paper bag and sewn upper corner with red sewing thread.

Then I glued piece of corrugated cardboard and the image on the bag and sewn two wooden flowers on it. Finished! :-D
