Multi Challenge

Here I am being very brave and making something to enter into more than one challenge.

I made this small gift bag and the colours of the bag and the things on it were so I could enter it in the Gingersnap Creations yearly challenge Not sure why the small squares look a shade of green as they are a  bronzy metal paper.

The second challenge is one on Try it on Tuesday where you had to use at least 3 inchies on the project-never thought of those before but they do add some interest so will be using them again.

Last but by no means least I am entering it in the Just for Fun Challenge. This was the most challenging for me as I am no good at stamping and the challenges at the moment are 'Making Friends with your Stamps'. This week is trying something you haven't tried before. Well that includes most things to do with stamping in my case. I embossed on the bag, I used a stamped image to decoupage on the bag, I used two colours on one stamp at the same time and the best thing is I enjoyed it!  Maybe me and stamping will become friends after all.

Thank you all of you for the great challenges
