CTD196 - Basket Full of Fun

It's time for the Color Throwdown, our hostess for this week's challenge is Danielle who has chosen some lovely colors along with a fun inspiration photo for us to create with.

I used this week's color challenge to create two cards for a card order I'm finishing up and if you can believe it I actually used a retired Stampin' Up stamp set.  I hung on to the SU Basket Full of Fun stamp set because I knew it was a set I'd use again.  The person I created these cards for is a knitter and is in a knitting class and wanted a few cards made up using this set.  For the image I stamped the basket, then masked off the basket and stamped the balls of yarn.  I used my aqua brush and ink pads to add in some color, then went back in with my Copic markers to add some shading.

Supplies: Basket Full of Fun - SU, Polka Dot embossing folder, Ribbon, Button, Aqua brush, Copics, TE Scallop border die, Foam tape.
