Sketch Challenge, Baskets of Happiness

Oh how I just love this stamp set by Gina K Designs!

It is called Baskets of Happiness and it has EGGS in the images!! Can you believe it!!

I just had to have it, I mean I gather eggs for heaven's sakes! Not just the 5 or 6 in the basket. The amount of eggs I gather wouldn't begin to fit in one basket!! I gather eggs from 11,600 hens!! That's a lot of eggs!

Yeh, I wouldn't want to colour all of them.....

For today's challenge I grabbed my new, new, new - not even available yet- paper from SEI called Dill Blossom that Marcie and I got at an auction of CHA "stuff" that we went to. See this post here for the "eff" explanation!

This paper is so pretty and full of greens and corals......just a gorgeous spring paper!

I basically just followed the sketch and then coloured my image with my copics. Oh, how I wish I had the WHOLE set!! I have the first 72 ciao copics so I joined the Gina K Copic "D" Club and have gotten 6 more and will be getting 6 more every month. It is only $25 per month, INCLUDING shipping!! A fantastic deal!!

I sponged around the edges of the white so it was so blatantly "out there"! and I water coloured in a bit of grass under the basket although on this picture it is rather skimpy!!

I added some Making Memories flowers from a little box FULL of flowers and buttons that all match!! So cool!!

I added some sparkle by using some lime green stickles in the center of Gina's flowers and then some blingy brads in the center of the paper flowers!!

The sentiment " You make me happy!" is also from GinaK's stamp set Baskets of Happiness!

    Did you really say that you have 11,600 chickens? Holy chickens, girl! That's a lot of eggs to gather!!!
