Sunshine in a bag

As promised, no more christmas.  So how about I give you sunshine in a bag? It's just about time for some spring feelings. :)

I've got these adorable little plastic bags/boxes whatever you call it, and I just felt I needed to do something where I used the fact that they are transparent. 
 I came up with this 3D-look that I think turned out pretty nice. What do you think? ;)
The super-duper cute birdies are a see-through puffy sticker I've been longing to use but never found the right place for, until now. The row of flowers are cut from a scrap paper piece, and on top of that some sort of semi-transparent nylon flower, with a brad center.

I used various papers from my "leftover"-stash to create the backdrop. The sky already had clouds on it, but I added a few more, plus a cutout cloud for depth. For the sun a "check me out"-yellow and a bit of "spot on"-green as grass. ;)

I added a cloud and a hot air balloon to the front because I didn't want the knots to show...and I also had a little mishap with the cloud so now the front is all bubbly... :( Naja, happens.
Anyway. Later I found that the front cloud added a really cool effect to the whole thing, see? Ooh I like it when these things happen, unintentionally.

So, this is the back. I just cannot leave it with a white side facing out, so I added this sky piece with a pink birdie. Almost looks like it's saying something with the beak open like that, but I never found out exactly what....

I'm entering my bag in the following challenges:

Whoopsi Daisy - Anything but square
Dream Valley - Anything goes
One stop craft - Spots and ribbon

  1. Wow that has really transformed the bags. Lovely & thanks for joining us at Dream Valley

  2. Love, love , love this! Wow, all the years that I taught elementary school I carried around all kinds of tote bags. None of them where ever this cute. I adore the way you added the transparent stickers and played up the "see through" factor. It gives a cohesive layered look. I always love happy accidents like the cloud. (That's how I come up with some of my best ideas :)
    I have way too many projects going on right now, but suddenly I want to abandon them all and make something like this. LOL Thanks for sharing your creative idea.
