Time for another Impression Obsession Design Team challenge - this time Easter baskets are our inspiration!
Did you know that you can enter these challenges too, using your Impression Obsession stamps? See the I.O. blog for all the details - you might even win a $25 gift certificate!!
This is a quick and easy basket, made from a square piece of cardstock (it's 21cm square...I don't normally measure in centimeters, but it did make it easy to divide the side in 3!) I followed this beautiful tutorial here to make the basket. Super easy! I actually showed some of our students here how to make them, too... and we have plans to make a bunch of tiny ones for wedding favors in a few months.
My bunny is one of Sarah Phelps' designs, "Bunny with Carrot" - stamped on some Basic Grey cardstock and colored with Neopiko markers and Prismacolor pencils. I handwrote the greeting on my tag.
Had to make a card too, and I had a couple other challenges I wanted to incorporate as well - Peachy Keen Stamps had a recipe challenge: use green and yellow, a 3-d element, with a stamped image. I used Friday Sketchers' sketch #91 as well.
It was fun pulling out all the patterned papers - I love these pale sages and buttercream yellows together. For the background of my watercolored scene, I used a cling set from Impression Obsession, called Garden Fence. (The sign is part of the set as well.) I used reinkers mixed with Shimmerz to paint with. "Grow" is a partial stamp image from the Typestacks Family clear set.
This time bunny is popped up on foam tape. The sign is dimensional, too.
