F4A4 Easter Basket

I thought I'd finished playing for the day when I had a look at this week's F4A4 Challenge to make a basket (or use a basket image).  I realised I didn't have any basket stamps and had a look at the SCS resource page and came across this cute Easter Basket.  Since I hadn't put away my JustRite Favorite Occasions stamp set yet I thought the Easter border and centre would be perfect for this challenge!  And if you didn't read the last post, this 1 5/8 stamp set and all others this size are 20% off at JustRite Stampers right through the month of March!!!

By using the tutorial at SCS I started with a base of pink bazzill for the box and covered it with this fun Imaginisce paper that's been in my stash for a while.  Next I made the handle with more pink bazzill - punching both sides with the Fiskars Lazy Days of Summer Border Punch and adding more Imaginisce paper.  Around the box I knotted some 3/8 white grosgrain ribbon.  Next I took the Favorite Occasions  stamp set and stamped the Easter centre and border in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured it with markers and a blender pen.  I cut it out with the Large Circle Nestabilities and matted it with pink bazzill cut with the matching scallop circle and popped the panel up on foam tape to the side of the box.

Stamps - Favorite Occasions (JustRite)
Paper - Pink Bazzill, White, Imaginisce DSP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Scor Pal, Fiskars Lazy Days of Summer Border Punch, Large Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities, 3/8 White Grosgrain Ribbon, Markers, Blender Pen, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)
