You should have arrived here from the uber talented Kylie Crosley (aka Brown)... but if you didn't, you might like to start at the beginning at AMY'S blog (trust me - you don't want to miss Amy's stop!).
The hop will run until Feb 17th and during these few days you will have a chance to win some amazing prizes... but you have to continue your way through the hop leaving comments as you go in order to win win win! If you get lost along the way, please stop by the Tickled Pink Stamps blog to find a list for the entire hop.
I have used the lovely "Kira" for my creation. If you know Kellie (the owner of TPS) you will know her eldest daughter's name is Kira :) Isn't that sweet? So I have coloured Kira's hair red, in honour of her namesake.
Instead of a card this time, I thought I would try my hand at decorating a gift bag. I've also used the gorgeous sentiment stamp from the Valentines Sentiments for my bag.
The paper is some older Kaisercraft (Flutterby) and I've used some corrugated cardboard (ahem, cardboard box, lol, inspired by the boss lady, Kellie, herself) behind the image for some texture. There are some rhinestones and a prima gem to match the sparkle added to Kira's wings and boots. The boots are actually coloured using the "feather blending" technique with my RV21 and YR04. There wasn't much room to blend in those boots, lol, but I got there.
The next stop on the hop is the amazing Magali!
