Altered Linen Bag using Color Burst

Dunja Ducker from the Creative Team has taken a plain ole linen bag and turned it into something magical.

Dunja says:

Hello everyone, I hope you are well :)
If you follow me on Instagram , maybe you already saw my little Video?
I prettied up a linen bag. 

I've placed a stencil with circles on the linen bag, and dabbed them with an Embossing pad, then I removed the stencil carefully. Next I scattered transparent embossing powder on the linen bag (shake off the excess and return it to the jar).
I dyed the bag with Ken Oliver Color Burst using the Orange and Violet. If you watch the video you can see how amazing the colors react. You do not need to use much of the Color Burst Powders as a little goes a long way.  I scattered the powder onto the dry linen bag and then sprayed some water on it. After drying, I've embossed the word 'art' in gold and embellished the bag with rhinestones.

I am very curious to hear if and like the colorful canvas bag? I would be happy to read your comments.
Have a nice day

Take a look at my video here.
