Baskets


Hope everyone had a nice Halloween and stayed safe.

This stamp is from PSX that I found in a box of stamps I bought at an estate sale last year! Let me tell ya.....I felt like I'd hit a gold mine. It was filled with alot of very nice stamps and it appeared they'd never been used!

This is for the Stampin Royalty challenge - a sketch. I used some Soft Suede, Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla, and Paper Studio DP. The images were colored with Prismapencils and the background done with chalk. I added some very tiny pearls (SU) to the flowers in the center but you probably can't see them unless you "click" on the picture to enlarge it.
Of course that bow was completed using the Bow-Easy! I'm actually working on making my own bows but to be honest, it just isn't going so great. I'm just pretty much all thumbs (oh, and sometimes I even use my teeth) when it comes to this!

Thanks for stopping by.........

Lynn, this is just lovely! The pearls are so pretty and your coloring of the image, perfection. Hey using the Bow Easy is just fine, why else would they have made it right? I pull mine out as well, when I things are not just going right.

Hi Lynn,

This card is an absolute stunner - love it's soft and gentle appeal. I zoomed in twice to admire it in all it's depth. You have such an awesome colour sense. Love the tiny pearls on the flowers and the big ones as well. Superb image - so delicate and feminine!

Beautiful card, love the image. Looks like you might have hit a gold mine if they all are like this one. Not a thing wrong with your bow, it is perfect.

Just gorgeous, Lynn! That beautiful image is colored perfectly. You added so much detail, wow! I love the Certainly Celery/Soft Suede mix with that polka dot paper, too. Hey, there is nothing wrong with using the Bow Easy...think of the $$ you will save on trips to the dentist by not using your teeth. Hee Hee! :)
