Turquoise gift bag using The Colour Tree Challenge#7,and CAS(E) this sketch #160

Hello again, the Colour combination at The Colour Tree had me struggling at first, but once I started playing with the colours I really enjoyed using them. I have always loved the Turquoise but I was daunted by the Gold. That's the beauty of Challenges - they get you thinking! I'm also linking up with the CAS(E) this sketch#160.

The gift bag (top, right) inspiration from the SAB catalogue.
In the end it's essentially a monochrome card with some Gold highlights - a few gold sequins and the fabulous Gold Washi tape on the peg. (though they don't show up very well in the photo) The Washi is from the Sale-a-Bration specials on at the moment, as is the gorgeous Pedal Pusher Stamp. Such a cute image and very easy to colour.  I used both a blender pen and the aqua painter. I don't make a lot of bags but was inspired to try the one at the back page of the Sale-A-Bration brochure. the Catalogue has such a lot of inspirational projects. You should check out all the projects at CASEing the Catty - we hold a monthly challenge too. I should use The Gift Bag Punch Board more often as it's really quite simple once you get the hang of it! I have to confess I went looking for the Black glimmer Washi tape and thought I had lost it - (wasted a bit of time too) until I realised the Metallics Glitter Tape actually comes in gold, silver and white...! So the painted panel is mounted on a piece of black glimmer cardstock. The Turquoise DSP is from a very old stack but I am making a real effort to use up some of my paper hoard  , stash,  collection! The little dots are from Timeless Texture, and the sentiment is from the Endless Birthday Wishes .. which I am using far more than I thought I would. It's so versatile.

You can't really see the gold very well but it is quite sparkly in real life.
