Food Glorious Food

Hello, it's Bank Holiday Monday,. I hope you’re all OK and having lovely extended weekend.
This is a double post for House Mouse and Prickley Pear

So for the theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, this time it was our lovely Christine's turn to choose the theme and she chose "Food Glorious Food" - Use an image on your creation that has some form of food on it.    I have used HMTR1016 Italian Feast, and made a gift bag.  I thought this bag would be nice if your going to a friends/relatives house for a meal to carry chocolates etc as a thank you.
Of course you must use a House MouseHappy Hopper or Gruffie to join in.

We are sponsored by:-
Our Lovely Christines (host) is offering a NEW pack HM Food/Drink decoupage sheets

And also

Prize - Winner will receive 5 Digital Stamps of their choice to QKR's online store

This is for the following challenges:-
1. Fussy & Fancy - #121 - Pets or Favourite animals (I adore mice)
2. Crazy For Challenges - #250 - Animals (mice)

Thanks for looking, the DT have all made gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the HM&F Monday Challenge to see them.

And now for my Design piece for Prickley Pear, there's lots more to see over on the Prickley Pear blog and lots of gorgeous stamps and dies over on their shop here:-
I took a piece of white card and stamped Prickley Pear butterflies with versa mark ink all over it. I then used embossing powder and heated it.  I then used three different colours of distress inks, worn lipstick, shabby shutters and mustard seed and coloured the card.  I then wiped over with kitchen paper to expose the embossed area's properly.  I have masked my flowers so I could layer the stamps then coloured with my spectrum noirs.  Cut and coloured two butterflies then stickled them.

So for my creation I used:-
CLR023 Mini Butterflies clear set
D041 Scallop Circle Nesting set

Stamps - HMTR1061 Italian Feast, Prickley Pear (as above)
Papers - LOTV Pressed In Time, 
Colouring Mediums - Spectrum Noirs, Distress Inks, 
Tools - Grand Calibur, Prickley Pear dies, border punch, sinature corner die,
Embellishments - doily, pearls, stickles,

Thank you for popping by my blog.
Happy crafting

You make the most perfect gift bags Tracy and your PPRS card is so soft and delicate (think mine got lost in the mix this week).
