AALL&Create Guest Designer - Purrfect Gift Bag

Hi folks, I'm sharing another Guest Designer project for AALL&Create using the super cute and adorable Purrfect Gift #121 stamp set designed by Olga Heldwein along with Stencils #23, #30 and #39 designed by Autour DeMwa and thought this would be the purrfect stamp set to decorate a Kitty Treats Christmas gift bag for friends who have feline companions.

I trimmed Distress Watercolor card to be slightly smaller than the gift bags which came in a pack of 5 from a local discount store. I applied Dina Wakley Ruby Acrylic Paint with a piece of Ranger Cut 'n Dry through Stencil #23
I applied Dina Wakley Lime Acrylic Paint through Stencil #30 around the numbers 2 and 5 and die cut using a circle die. I applied Dina Wakley Black Acrylic Paint to the smaller numbers on the back of the stencil, pressed on to a scrap of card (using the stencil as a stamp) and fussy cut.
I fixed the die-cut circles and small numbers to the panel using Distress Collage Medium Matte, applied Ranger Texture Paste through Stencil #39 and while the paste was still wet, sprinkled with Simon Says Stamp Antique Gold Embossing Powder. I waited about 20 minutes for the paste to dry and heated to melt the embossing powder. I tapped a Versamark in pad around the edges of the panel and heat embossed with the Antique Gold embossing powder.
I stamped the Purrfect Gift image several times on to Strathmore Bristol Smooth card using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
I fussy cut sections from the stamped images leaving a white border and coloured using Zig Clean Color Brush Markers and a water brush.
I stamped the sentiment on to a scrap of card with Versafine Onyx Black, applied Ruby Acrylic Paint with Cut 'n Dry around the edges and fixed the images and sentiment in place with Distress Collage Medium Matte and Tim Holtz/Sizzix Mini Foam Adhesive.
I added Tim Holtz Idea-ology Occasions Small Talk Stickers, a little bit of doodling to the die-cut circles with a Sakura Micron Black Fineliner pen and finished off with a Red Crinkle Ribbon bow.
