I was inspired by our Beautiful Friend and Leader, Julie K of A Little Bit of Bling, and owner of 3  Girl JAM.  She shared her creation with all of our Design Team and I was absolutley in awe of her gorgeous techniques and end result on her State Line Bag.
 Isn't this truly Magnificent?
Way to Rock the Bag thrilled over this beauty, that I had to share it!

Here is the 3D Valentine Project I created after being so inspired by Julie's Project above!

I tried to spritz my homemade pink glimmer mist onto my bag, but my spray bottle was not being very cooperative.  I unscrewed the cap and painted the mix on the canvas bag instead.  As it dried, I began creating my tags.  I inked up the edges with American Crafts - Rouge Red.  I then stamped the background puzzle image from the Unity Set, Love you to pieces, using Dew Drops - Starlite Silver. I pleated some Summer Sprinkles Crinkle Ribbon around the edge of my tag for a softened appeal.  I stamped the same image onto a second Kraft Tag and placed that on the back of the first using 3D foam squares.  I added a fussy cut puzzle piece (another stamp in the Unity Set) and a heart to my tag.  The paper I used for the puzzle piece is Amy Tangerine-Sketchbook.  Aren't those rainbow hearts just darling!  I put the heart on an Action Wobble for extra pizazz!
 The bag was then stamped with the same background puzzle image, but using my Ranger Embossing ink this time.  I sprinkled white embossing powder over the wet ink, then heat embossed.  I would suggest letting the heat gun be as far away as possible for this technique.  If you get to close, it will begin to discolor from the high heat.
 I added the sentiment, Love you to pieces, from the same Unity Set using TH Distress Ink, Black Soot.  I went over the sentiment on the bag with my black gel pen for added darkness.
To finish off my State Line Bag, I added Cherry Lipstick and more Summer Sprinkles Crinkle Ribbon to the drawstrings.
I did a little more stamping and embossing on the back of the bag because you can never have too much, right?  LOL!  I wanted to show you also that if you get your heat tool too close to the painted bag, it can discolor it a bit.  See the center of the bag that has a bit of an orange hue?  That was pink, not orange...he he he! 

lovely Blends and 3 Girl JAMmers
