Falling Leaves Bagalope

Lori posted a tutorial for a bagalope -a lovely gift sack made from an envelope- on Split Coast Stampers.

I decided to have a go with a brown envelope and combine it with Clare's Falling Leaves challenge on CBC and made this:



I had a vague recollection that paisley is based on leaf shapes so I used the large paisley backgrounder by CHF and inked it up in various shades of brown then added a little strip of Bazzill with small leaves punched out. I made the tag with a chunky foam stamp and pigment ink stamped on a coffee filter coloured with various food colourings and dusted with some gold lustre powder. I've tied the bag shut with some jute garden twine that I twisted to make a slightly chunkier cord.

Supplies: Large Paisley Backgrounder (Cornish Heritage Farms), chunky foam leaf stamp, chalk inks in burnt sienna, chestnut roan and dark brown, Pretty Colour dark brown pigment ink, small leaf punch, corner rounder, coffee filter, food colourings, gold lustre powder, jute garden twine.

Thanks for stopping by!
