I've got eggs in my basket, er, pail!
Today is another blog hop sponsored by TAC Savvy Projects blog. It's called "Easter Basket Bonanza" but, I have all these gold pails! So I used one instead.
A friend gave me some 6" wide white tulle and I wrapped the pail in a piece then added a large bow to the pail handle. Next I used the largest Big Scalloped Square and my Wizard to make the pastel green label. I attached it using my Crop-A-Dile and some small yellow paper brads. I stamped the Hedgehog/wagon from the Hedgehog Happiness Hostess C set on Caboodle cardstock using my Momento Black ink and colored with Copic markers (E35., E37, E55, E57, G12, G82, and the blender). I used a piece of terrycloth towel and the blender to make the hedgehog's fur look more textured.
I cut out a small piece of green cardstock and cut it too look like grass which I adhered to the wagon. Then I attached the hedgehog and wagon to the label with foam mounting tape.
The wagon-load of 3 eggs were cut with another tool then embossed with 3 different Cuttlebug folders before adhering behind the grass. I did some sanding to make the embossing stand out a bit more. This is a rather simple "basket" but I wanted to use what I had on hand.
