Pass Me My Bag, I'm Off To The Summer Ball

A Summer's Ball is the new challenge at CRAFTY INDIVIDUALS so pop over and join in.

The bag is made from cream fabric and is just the right size for those essentials items like perfume and lipstick. First I stamped the whole bag with CI-017 script stamp using Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink.  The image is from Crafty Individuals' Miniatures People & Places 2 book and was stuck on using Glossy Accents with some pearls to finish off.  

The flower was made by roughly cutting out 5 circles, alternating between the cream fabric and some that I dyed with cold tea.  After fraying some of the edges, the petals were stamped with the script and Spiced Marmalade and China Blue Distress Inks.  

Now all I need is my invitation and I'm good to go!
