Dream Valley DT Challenge #92 - and don't forget we have a DT Call going on!

Good morning! Apologies - I'm a day late for the latest Dream Valley Challenge which is Anything But a Card So you can try your hand at a tag, a box, a gift-bag, a working scale model of the Tardis.....

Our sponsor is The Paper Shelter and the DT were able to use a couple of their gorgeous images!

I made a decorated goft bag. I received a We R Memory Keepers Gift Bag Punch Board for Christmas, and I'm ashamed to say I have only recently opened it! It's a very good piece of kit, the instructions are pretty easy, as long as you remember which end of your patterned paper you want to be at the top. Hint: all the punching needs to be done along the BOTTOM edge! Go on, ask me how I know! ;)


The bag is decorated with a beautiful TPS image, Moon Spell which is on offer at the moment! I loved colouring her masses of hair!

I used a Spellbinders Star Circles die for the mat, and cut it again in silver glitter paper to provide the stars which I fitted into the shapes on the mat, and used to decorate the image. I used a clear Wink of Stella pen on the moon and the roses in the girl's hair, it gives a delicate glimmer that is very pretty!

Finally I used narrow lace as a border along the top of the bag (glued down before the bag was assembled) and ribbon from my stash to make the tie.

Go and see the gorgeous creations my teamies have made, then think outside the box (or card lol!) and join in the fun!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

You did a terrific work on this cute bag. Love the blue ranges you selected. An awesome job on the hair coloring too, some great highlights and shadows there. It's a really cute image, and I liked the S/Binder shapes that highlight this little sweetie. Good for you at using the new tool. TFS & Hugs

Love this Mags! I've had my eye on one of these WAMK punch boards. I've got the envelope one, which I do like, I must say, though I must be numerically dyslexic as it takes me ages to work out the sizes properly! LOL. Speaking of LOL, I love your tardis quick, now that would be one to see! ;)
Beautiful colouring on that image Mags and lovely design. Really enjoyed readying your blog post today. Hugs, Wends x
