     This month the theme is all about Spring with wonderful colors and also Easter projects. Yup, after a long snowy and cold winter, who isn't ready for Spring? For my project I decided to decorate some "purses" for my 3 grand daughters for Easter rather than a basket. The grand sons may get the baskets, lol.
     I bet you are saying "what the heck is that? Well, I had some clear purses and decided to ink some up. I first used some alcohol inks in the following colors: watermelon,pitch black,sunset orange and pearl. I inked this from the inside and used plenty of alcohol blender until I got the colors and look I wanted. Next I taped it down to my table with a piece of foam underneath my purse. This is because I wanted to do some stamping but didn't want it all over but just on the front piece. I always stamp on top a piece of foam. I found this gives me a nice crisp print.
     This is a close up with the stamping. I wanted to add some dimension so I used some rhinestones and liquid pearls to make the flowers pop.
     I had inked the handle with just the pitch black alcohol inks and then added some gold braid that I had in my stash. Are you ready to see what I did with my Pinque Peacock flower and stick pin?
     Yup, I used it as the faux closure on my purse! If you haven't tried any of these products then what are you waiting for? I particularly LOVE these sweet stick pins! They are simply gorgeous! I stuck mine through this beautiful felt flower and chose the stick pin that matched the button. I curved the bottom of the stick pin up and added a small love charm. You can purchase these wonderful products @ the Pinque Peacock store HERE.
     Here is the completed purse:
     All I have to do now is fill it with some goodies!
