Bella Creations May Pole Challenge

I just love to play in the 
I had just enough time to squeeze this last minute entry into
Shawn's group...Viola Ink.
Here is the image we were to play with...
and it is from the Graphics Fairy.
I decided to use GIMP to get rid of the background, and create my own.  If you are interested in learning how to do this...then come and join Bella Creations and Check out my new group
(coming in June)
Début des Techniques Graphiques
You will learn some basic skilz to change the wonderful
images that you can find out on the net.
My little bag is titled 
"Sweet Innocence"
(you can barely make it out in the last photo)
I put my image on a tiny bag that I created with my 
Silhouette SD.  I stamped it with my hand drawn and carved stamps in Scattered straw, and all edges inked with Ranger's Vintage photo distress ink.
I used a Martha Stewart around the page punch, inked it with a little fired brick..and Vintage photo.  Created the Maypole text on my Silhouette SD.  That fabbie trim is from one of Bella DT Sisters...Starr.  I inked it too :-)
That lovely blue butterfly is from Gecko Galz and so is the Paris stamp image that I used on my image.
Here is a close up of the Maypole image.
I changed the background to a yellow color.  Then added some pink text across the whole image (can't see it here) and then the Paris Post Mark.  The Butterfly is a separate piece..to add depth.  The Maypole word is popped up with pop dots.
My Garden is Calling me :-)

    Although I use digital art (I am on Divas D'Este's DT) I am intimidated about the prospect of manipulating art. Saying all that I will definitely join but not making too many promises LOL.
