Living in the country has its perks, but sometimes it can be frustrating. For example, when you live far enough out you are restricted to satellite internet. It is slower for one thing, but when it is very stormy the weather interferes. Sometimes it stops it all together. That would be this last weekend. Bummer. Let’s catch up.
I made this lovely little gift set for a friends daughter. She had the role of Violet Boreguarde in a children’s musical this last weekend. Of course the gift bag needed to be filled with gum, because that is what Violet is all about. That was so much fun!
I also dug out one of my old stamp sets from 2004. I wanted to create the look of bubbles, for the gum of course, and this set came to mind. I don’t even remember the name of the set. When you purchase quality it lasts for sure. This set is twelve years old and worked like a charm.
I brought in perfect plum, elegant eggplant and some gold encore ink for this set. Violet did indeed get a golden ticket after all. When the scene came for her to change into the large blueberry, she had this inflatable suit that literally made her look so huge and round and most definitely violet in color. It was a great night. The grin she made when she looked in the bag was fantastic.
Have a creative day!
