Hello! Good morning, hope you all had great mother's day!! My basket is for Gina's challenge to make a card or project using flowers. This project took me down memorie lane, I grew up on along the coast of California and spent a lot of time gathering shells along the beach. When my sister and I were little girls, we would make all kinds of things out of shells, necklace's , cover cigar boxes with shells and glue them on. We also made flower's using shells and pipe cleaner's. What fun we had. When Melanie Muenchinger came out with this set. " Gifts from the Sea" by Gina K. Designs. I was just thrilled!!
For the pansy's I used the clam shell for the flower and the star fish for the leaves.
Here is a huge close-up of the flower's.
I used copic's to color the petal's and sponged around the edges.
other supplies I used, MS punch, Basic Grey DP, Gina K Designs card stock and ribbon.
Gina has a tutorial on making the basket on Stamp TV.
Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.
