Petite Purse

It's hard to believe it's May already. This is a Petite Purse die that I've been having fun with. The idea of how to make this was from a video I saw of Cathy Parlitsis. It is a technique called Faux Acrylic Distress. First cut out your die. Then ink the purse up with Soft Suede ink with a sponge. Do both sides of the handle. After it dries, you put it in an embossing folder. Then you use a sanding block to the embossed image to remove the ink from the design. Then ink up a sponge using a Baja Breeze and cover the embossed image where you sanded. Put purse together with Sticky Strip. Do the same with handle on both sides and attach to your purse with brads. I also had a little bow to the front.
