It is my pleasure to share a project with you as GDT for the Aussie Besties Challenge and I’ve chosen one of Sherri’s Sweet Treats Teacup Besties to create this pretty gift Bag:

My image is printed onto Cryogen White Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 clothes and linen: R85, R83, R81, R0000 teacup: W3, W1, W00, BG13, ?BG11, BG10, BG0000

There are loads of wonderful Besties stamps available in both rubber and digital and a variety of Besties challenges for you to participate in too with some great prizes available, so pop by the Aussie Besties challenge for some great ideas to inspire you.

I left the bag without a sentiment or tag at this stage as I thought it would be suitable for a variety of occasions. Baby Shower, Kitchen Tea, Birthday or Just Because.. We will see what comes up first.

One last look:
