Picnic basket

This is the finished project that we're going to be making for the September playday.

Made from 2 sheets of a4 card and a few sheets of Dream Catcher paper from First Edition.

The basket is my own design, handle and lid edges using a Martha Stewart punch, various leaf & flourish dies from Marianne Designs, Cheery Lynn & Memory Box. The flowers are all made from scratch using the bitty blossom spiral dies from Spellbinders. I have to admit to being chuffed with how the flowers came out even if they did take an age to ink edges then fiddle with each petal to try and get a realistic shape. I've learnt my lesson about hot glue guns so stuck (no pun intended lol) with my trusty tombow.

Not sure about my colouring on the Tilda, no matter how often it's explained I still don't get where to put the shadows and I have a habit of going too dark in places. Joanna Sheens Elegance paper, copic e00s, v00s, rv10s, rv42, c's, Cut with one of the spellbinder label dies.

Thought I'd enter this one into the current Just Magnolia challenge, Anything Goes with the optional handmade flowers.

and, Dutch Dare Card Challenge who's theme this week is Anything But A Card.
