Easter Basket Hop
There is an Easter Basket Hop this weekend over at The Angel Company . I just got my first Big Spellbinders dies and a Grand Caliber so this is my first project using the big dies. I have the scallop circles and I cut my basket using pink cs, I colored my image from I Love Easter with water color crayons. I was cleaning out some "stuff" and ran across some water color paper so I stamped my image on the watercolor paper. It has been a long time since I used the water color crayons and I forgot how much fun coloring with them was. I mounted my colored image on a scallop fancy circle cut from More Mimi paper. On the handle I tied a bow (the ribbon is from a gift my friend Pat gave me this week), it went perfect with the More Mimi. I used an oval pink gem from the Pink Gem collection D310 - they reminded me of Easter eggs. I put three chocolate bunnies in the basket and I think it turned out pretty cute. Fun project for my new big dies.
