Working On Canvas!

>> Monday, March 14, 2011

In our recent package of goodies from DRS Designs the DT was given a challenge. Each member was given several cute canvas bags to stamp up. Talk about a challenge!! It took me about two weeks to get the courage to start thinking out of my comfort zone-anything but a card and my brain has a tendency to freeze up and my creative mojo goes elsewhere! Considering the size of these bags, they are not too much different than working on a card front-they measure approx. 6.5" x 5" when completely flat and have a drawn string closure. Once I put my mind to it however, the ideas came to me rather easy.
I then took the plunge to see what I could come up with.

This fun, St. Patrick's Day goodie bag was the outcome of my first brainstorm attempt. I began by first stamping Sean and the Rainbow (L521) with Momento ink and coloring it very lightly with Copic Markers.  Next, I stamped the One Line St. Pats Day Greeting (636D) below the image and then stamped the Shamrock Background (326H) all over to fill the empty space with SU! Handsome Hunter ink.  Since there's always a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, I thought it would be fun to fill my bag with chocolate gold coins, and besides, who doesn't love chocolate!?!!?
I was so happy with the result that I created a matching card to go with it.  

What would you create with these fun canvas bags?
