******A Gift Bag of Navy, Gold, and Rust


RUST       GOLD        NAVY 

I wanted a small gift bag to hold a little hostess gift.  Just in time...Just Rite issues challenge 044 which is to use colors of Navy, Rust  & Gold. I had a white "put it together yourself" treat bag/box that I thought would serve my purpose. 
A rusty color of Luna Lights paint was sponged inside and out of the bag.    While that was drying, I embossed the flower and frame from Just Rite's Autumn Blessings on navy cardstock in gold.  Loving a bit of glitz, I "colored" the bouquet with Art Institute glitters of blue, gold, and a coppery rust.  Do your notice the cheat?  A little  touch of green  was added to the leaves. And yes, it took a bit of time to color each petal separately!  Next, I went to my overflowing cupboard of wrapping paper to find a bit of dark blue tissue paper.  Naturally all I had was white, so I took the flower and stamped it all over the tissue.  A bit of gold glitter was added to the flower centers just because.  The last step was to embellish the bag a bit, put it all together and take a couple of pictures.
