Happy Saturday to you all hope you are having a good one mine has been on and off LOL ! This morning was great went and watched my granddaughter play in the State Championship All Star game for Jr. High basketball they lost by one point. Just having a great day crafting after that and go to do laundry and the washer is not agitating or spinning holy moly it is not even 6 months old and of course can't get a service call till Monday morning. OK enough of all that and on to the little woven basket. Just Magnolia had a special challenge to create/alter an Easter basket/container. Well as life would have it I did not have time to do it then but I just fell in love with the DT's examples, especially Bev's so I was determined to make one. Well here is my take on the challenge you find the instructions on how to make this from Lena and if you have not seen the beautiful things she creates you are really missing out.
I have used "Sweet Tilda" and you can get her at Magnolia-licious don't forget if you are member of the Magnolia yahoo group you will receive special discounts on all purchases. DP used for the basket is KC & Co. and then I have distressed them with walnut stain by Tim Holtz. I cut the handle and the scalloped oval and circle with my wishblade, distressed them with the same and then went over the swiss dots with a lite pink chalk. Branch is MS punch and the little flowers just some that were in my stash. I have added some stickles to Tilda's hair ribbons, sleeve cuffs and a little bit on the edge of her skirt.
Copics used RV02, RV04, RV0000, R20, E00, E21, E31, E33, E35, E37, E43, YR61.
Thanks for coming by have a great rest of your evening.
