Wish Wrapping...Wrapping of Techniques!

I don't know if you know this about me...but I LOVE having cute packaging for gift.  Now...of course I don't always get to decorating my gift bags and such.  But when I makes my heart pitter patter.  This one I am about to show you is FULL of fun "texture" techniques.  Check it out:

Colors: Melon Mambo, Coastal Cabana, Pineapple Punch, Basic Black
Inks: Melon Mambo, Memento Black, Pigment Sprinkles, Pineapple Punch Dark Blends Marker
Cardstock/Papers: Whisper White, Basic Black, Vellum Cardstock, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper
Stamps: Broadway Birthday
Tools: Scallop Tag Topper Punch, Broadway Lights Dies, Aqua Painter, Pattern Party Decorative Masks, Palette Knives
Accessories: Whisper White Baker's Twine, Iridescent Sequin Assortment, Shimmery White Embossing Paste

First we are going to pause and much more fun would  ^ THIS ^  bag be to receive than just a plain bag?!  So much more fun, right?!  Hee.  Also...this bag is filled with techniques...even though it may not look it at first.  Let me show you some more details pics.

First is the word.  It is die-cut from the Broadway Lights Dies (Item #146317).  But then...I covered it with a layer of the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (Item #138309) to make it all glossy/shiny/3D.  I love this fun technique!  I then adhered the word onto the bag...which I had done a layer of Shimmery White Embossing Paste.  LOVE the texture and fun this adds!

Now on to the tag:

This tag was SO much fun to make!!!  I started with a piece of the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  Swoon...this paper is so lush and "soft" and beautiful to work with.  I know, the watercolor paper is white--right?!  Well this tag doesn't look very white, I know.  I did some watercoloring on this tag using the Pigment Sprinkles!!! These are SOOOOOO very fun!!!  I LOVE them!  You can do all sorts of things with them (which I will continue to share what you can do!), but for this tag...I simply just took some of the crystals and waterolored the whole watercolor paper piece.  Then...once it was dry, I just splattered some ink back onto it!  I love the backgound and how it looks!  Then I just finished the tag with a fussy cut balloon, fun saying & sequins!  😍  Now...I have another FUN technique to point out here.

CHECK OUT THAT BAKER'S TWINE!  You may be thinking...but Stampin' Up! doesn't have a bright yellow baker's twine!!!  So how did I get that twine?!  Well...I COLORED it!  With the Pineapple Punch Dark Blends Marker!  Did you know you could color your Whisper White Baker's Twine?!  Well you can!  I LOVE those Blends Markers!

I so hope you enjoy this gift bag.  Look at my cute daughter even taking her turn to hold the bag...

Love that cute hand.  Hee.

I hope you enjoy this bag!  Thank you so much for visiting!  Please let me know if you have any questions!

So cool! I've tried to make things glossy before, but never tried that way. Looking forward to giving it a whirl. The bag is darling!
