To Colour or Not to Colour...

I created this set of fun cards for a birthday for one of my nieces & just as I was about to colour, thought "No, she can do that".  This way it will be something that she hashelped create for her little friends.  I then made a matching basket to give them a home.  I am also trying to use my stash of DSP & stamps before the new Catalogue comes out!

The cards all measure 4" x 4".  They have been stamped directly onto Whisper White Cardstock using Basic Gray Ink.

I cut strips of DSP about 1 1/2" x 4", punched the sides with different Border Punches & adhered them to the side of the cards.

For my flowers, I have used ones from my box of goodies, some are SU Flowers, while others are pre-SU!  I adhered Basic Pearls to the centre of the flowers.

The Basket is made from Whisper White Cardstock & covered with the same DSP as I've used on the cards.  I attached flowers to the sides & front.  For my handle, I used a piece of DSP, punched a border down both sides & adhered to the sides of the basket.

Ink - Basic Gray
Cardstock - Whisper White
DSP - Sweet & Sour Speciality
Punches - Scallop Edge Border, Scallop Trim Border, Eyelet Border, Pinking Hearts Border

Love it. Love the colours, and the sheer brilliance of letting the children add their own creative touch. Thanks for sharing.
