Build it up week - Sylvie

Sylvie is with us today and she built up a beautiful 3D display with her die-cuts to add to the side of an altered paper bag. Look at the details on there, really scrumptious. 
Sylvie used PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints and stamps, along with Crafty Individuals stamps and Memory Box + Spellbinders + Marianne D's dies. 

Take a brown paper bag (or any colour paper bag) and apply the following PaperArtsy Fresco Finish colours: Nougat, Mermaid and South Pacific as well as touch of Irish Cream

Add touches of Vintage Photo, Tea Dye and Salty Ocean Distress inks as well as Distress Stains in Walnut Stain and Salty Ocean.
Cut out your differents die cuts in brown cardstock and brush them with a bit of Treasure Gold (Sapphire, Ruby, White fire, Gold)

Using Versamark and any stamp you like (here PaperArtsy), stamp randomly on the bag using Stamp and Bond ink and press the Shiny Transfer Foil
Emboss the fern die-cut with Cosmic Shimmer powder (Aurora Persian Sea ). Stamps the bag with Versamark and emboss (here with Cosmic Shimmer Orange Blaze)
Add touches of Treasure Gold on the remaining branches
