CardMaker + Z Becky Brown

CardMaker Blog 250x250 (2)

Hello there – welcome to the Z Becky Brown and CardMaker blog hop! I have a darling Z Becky Brown handbag project to share with you today.

This bag was so much fun to customize and has such a classic design that will never go out of style. The thing that really struck me right out of the box was the high quality construction – it’s made from a heavy duty polymer with well-made hinges and hardware. And it’s made in the USA which is always a plus!

There are of course endless options for adding your own personal touch to the insert panels and for this bag I took a little inspiration from the classy, ladylike look of Kate Spade bags. Polka dots and a bow = classy perfection!

The background was created with a combination of spray inks and some fine glitter for a spring look.

I sprayed several coats of Colorbox® Sprays!, Spritzers and Smooch Spritz and then blended with an Art Wheel.

This next step you’ll definitely want to do outside or in a ventilated area (cough, cough, hack, hack). 🙂 Coat the panels with a spray adhesive sealant and then sprinkle with a fine glitter such as the Fairy Dust glitter. I then added another layer of the sealer to keep the glitter in place. It sort of looks like a shimmery, far away galaxy!

The final step, which I didn’t get a photo of, was to stamp the background with a polka dot image. I found pigment ink gave the best coverage on top of the glitter.

And that’s it from me today! Please visit Lee Ann Barrett for the next project on the blog hop.

    Your bag looks so elegant with the pretty white bow. Love the color of the insert and the way it sparkles. Great bag.
