WEDNESDAY, January 12, 2011- Happy Pansies



I stamped the pansies in corresponding ink colors ( purple in purple ink and the yellow ones in a green ink as the yellow didn't show up enough.) Always fun to try something new. The pansies were colored with copic's
I used MS punch and cuttlebug die. the basket I made using MFP " Background Fun" colored it with copic's and then cut out the shape I wanted and outlined it in black ink. I'm thinking that adorable bunny that comes with " In the Forest" would look good in the basket too!. What do you think?

Be sure to check out the gorgeous samples the rest of the team has.
