Vellum Goodie Bag (Fairy Tale Challenge #115)

Happy Friday everyone :o)

It´s time for a new challenge at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.

The theme for this fortnight is #115, Verpackung für etwas süßes / Wrap something Sweet
You can make a box for something sweet, wrap something sweet, or put something sweet directly on your project. Whatever you like. :o)

Our sponsor for this challenge is Milk Coffee, with an awesome prize for our random winner: 3 digital images of the winner´s choice.

For this challenge I made a Vellum Goodie Bag, using our sponsor´s gorgeous image 'Charlotte at Paper Ship'.

First I made a simple bag from a vellum paper and decorated it with white and yellow gingham stripes.

Then I printed the image on a white paper (160 grams) and colored it with colored pencils and blue fine liner. I used two different techniques for blending:
  • hair, water and paper ship are blended with baby oil (I saw that in a video Colored Pencil Blending Methods by Dina Kowal a while ago.)
  • yellow parts and skin are blended using two different colored pencils

To make scalloped circle, I used scalloped circle template from cardstock I have. I traced the template around the image, cut it out and erased pencil traces. 
I covered dots, flowers and butterfly on the image with a gloss resin gel, to create glossy accents and to pop up those parts of the image.
When the image was completely dry, I glued 3-D foams behind the image and placed it on the bag. I also glued punched butterflies on the bag.

Using my crafting needle and scoring board, I pierced top of the bag every 1/8", so I could sew through them. I filled the bag with Merci chocolate bars, sewed the bag and glued rubber flower on the right upper corner. 

Bag dimensions are 76 mm x 102 mm (3" x 4").
