Moroccan Inspired Canvas Purse

Hello! Tami Sanders here today with a project using several of the new stencils to share with you.

The Crafter’s Workshop released a bunch of FAB NEW stencils at the winter CHA, you can view them all here: WINTER 2015 CHA RELEASE

I had a plain canvas purse that I wanted to embellish. I went through the new designs and found the new TCW2066 Eye Bits Stencil…

The Crafter's Workshop - Balzer Bits - Doodling Template - Eye

It reminded me of a graphic version of a “Moroccan”-style eye, so I went back through the stencils and pulled out stencils that I thought would work for a Moroccan theme…

I mixed and layered the stencils inking the designs with ColorBox Crafter’s Inks. I used Spun Sugar Smooch Spritz to add some “distress” to the project. Then I heat set the designs to set the inks.

The eye design was added to the center, filled in with the Crafter’s Inks, then Izink for some shimmer and finally outlined using a fine tip brown sharpie.

Some natural cotton fringe was tinted using ColorBox Archival Dye Ink Sprays. The fringe was then glued along the bottom of the purse and a row of vintage sequin trim added for a little more bling. As a finishing touch, a few scraps taken from “junque” vintage jewelry were attached to the zipper pull

Here is the finished bag…
