Lemons are Lovely/Couches are Comfy

I picked up a little gift for someone very special recently, and thought it would be fun to decorate a little kraft bag to put the gift in. And, of course, I thought it would be extra fun to decorate the little bag with Basic Grey's Lemonade line and Lisa Johnson's On My Couch stamp set by Papertrey Ink! Surprise, surprise!
I started by using my SU polka dot background stamp to stamp pink polka dots all over the bag. Then I used Lisa's couch outline to stamp onto a piece of BG paper. I cut it out, colored it a bit with my Copic markers to give it some depth, and then mounted it on the bag using dimensional tap. I used just a little bit more BG paper down at the bottom of the bag for some extra color, and then stamped a fitting sentiment on the bag, just underneath the couch.
Overall, I love how the bag turned out. Too bad the sweeet little gift is dwarfed in size by the bag.
Hopefully she'll be able to find those tiny earrings in there.....
Have a great day!
