MUSE: PURSE-onality

Remember this post?  When I went all background attack on an innocent piece of white cardstock and created this?


Well DOH! and behold, I forgot to post what I made from that glorious piece of no-longer-white cardstock goodness.  So here goes!


I used it to decorate my ZBecky Brown purse!

First I used a Clear Paintables from Prima, which was colored in places using metallic and pearl Paint pens.  I cut it into quarters and placed it at the front, back and sides of the purse design on top of the stamped cardstock.


Next, I cut two long scrollwork pieces from blue embossing foil (Amaco) using Spellbinders' Illuminations die.  This is a 12" die, so two passes created all I needed to wrap around the bottom edge of my purse.


I cut and embossed a piece of cardstock and blue embossing metal foil (Amaco) with the Spellbinders' Label One die.  I used these as the backdrop for my glorious butterfly charm from Rennaissance Art Stamps, which I colored with Copic Markers.


Finally, I topped it off with a large flower from Prima, sprayed with Glimmer Mist and a couple of metal charms.

Everywhere I go, from the grocery store to the bank, somebody always comments on this purse.  And the beauty of it is I can pull it all out and start over in the Spring with a new design.

I saw the ZBecky purses for a good price at recently btw, if you would like to get one of these acrylic purses.
