March is the start of another coloring challenge hosted by Kathy Racoosin of The Daily Marker and everyday I’ve tried to set aside some time to color stamped images. Some will eventually make it into cards and some are just for practice. This is what I colored on the second day of the challenge and as you can see, they did end up on a card! 😉
I stamped all of the images from the kit onto white cardstock with copic-friendly ink and then colored them with copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut out all the images and then used a craft knife to carefully cut out the inside of the basket so I could tuck the veggies inside!
I stamped the sentiment from Egg-Cellent onto the chocolate textured cardstock that’s included in the kit and trimmed it down to a label. I adhered it to a piece of white cardstock cut to 4″x5.25″ with foam mounting tape and then adhered the white cardstock to a card base. Then I built up my scene with the various gardening supplies, veggies, and fruits using a mixture of regular adhesive and foam mounting tape for a little more dimension. I love the look of the overflowing basket filled with lots of fresh goodies!
