Hello Everyone
Thank you for joining me for this post where I am sharing a muslin bag I decorated for an art friend, Marie  (Lost Bird Studio) who celebrated her birthday in June.
This was a pre-made muslin bag so all I had to do was have fun decorating it and then filling it with lace for Marie.
I selected one of my all time favourite stamps from Oxford Impressions which is from the Soul of the Rose plate (also available from That’s Crafty) , although the stamp script on the actual muslin bag is from the Venezia stamp plate.  Stained vintage lace covers the majority of the script but I liked the hint of it peeking through.  The photo real stamp was stamped onto TAP before transferring onto canvas.lynnemoncrieffsouloftheroseThe image was lightly painted with Caran d’ache watersoluble crayons. DIGITAL CAMERAAnother time I will share the notebook and card I also sent to Marie.
Unusually for me, this was a short post. No doubt I will make up for it next time!

    You inspire me to get out my TAP and do some stamping and coloring…

    I LOVE this Lynne! It’s so beautiful, delicate and very, very pretty. The cut of the image looks great, as does the beautiful stained lace. This is definitely somewhere to keep a special little treasure in.

    Take care
