Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop | Basket Bunch Gift Box

Hello there stamping friends!! So happy you could join us today! This week the Artisan Design Team have been asked to feature either Dragonfly Dreams or Basket Bunch. Two fabulous sets but so very different so I hope that you get loads of ideas from this hop for both sets.

Basket Bunch is very much geared towards Easter but I love the daffodils in this set. It may be Autumn here in Australia but when Winter ends and Spring does come around I love when all the daffodils are in bloom and all that bright yellow colour.

And those daffodils make for some gorgeous bright colour to your creations.

All the images have been coloured using the Watercolour Pencils and then I used an Aqua painter to 'pull' out and 'wash' the colour. 

I'm loving the contrast from the Soft Sky cardstock of the Bakers Box to the Pear Pizzazz 'grass' and then the Daffodil Delight and Early Espresso colours in the basket and daffodils.

I put some pieces of the 5/8" Burlap Ribbon vertically to add some texture to the basket. To do this I put a strip of Tear & Tape across the top edge of the basket and then put down some small pieces of the 5/8" Burlap Ribbon and trimmed it to fit.

To give the smaller daffodils some brighter colour I first coloured with the Daffodil Delight watercolour pencil and then added a little bit of the Pumpkin Pie pencil for some added depth. Loving that deeper yellow colour.

I hope that you've enjoyed my little Daffodil Gift Boxes and got some more ideas for the Basket Bunch stamp set.

Next on to the ever colourful and ever amazing, Shannon Lane, in Canada. Did I say I love her work?

Thanks so much for stopping by!
