A Basket Full of Goodness


Delicious, shiny, mouth watering.  Who doesn't love a wonderful fresh and crisp apple.  I am playing along with the challenge at Splitcoast today.  I found this free digital image, printed it out and coloured it with Copic markers.  I added Glossy accents to the apples to make them appear shiny.  I kept my card simple by adding a doodled border and sponged the edges with Distress ink.  For a finishing touch, tied a piece of twine on the basket handle.  I am also adding my card to the Seize the Birthday challenge and the CASology challenge (country...where we would go to pick apples).

Supplies:  stamps; Studio G, free digital (http://freevintagedigistamps.blogspot.ca/2012/06/free-vintage-digital-stamp-basket-of.html) /Distress ink/ Glossy Accents/ blackline marker/ Memento bl

Now this just calls out "COUNTRY" to me...the subtle distress inks on the edges, the crisp apple basket, the sweet doodle border...all wonderfully CAS, too! So glad you played along with CASology again this week!

I LOVE the shiny apples and the added border and sponging is such a nice touch….I may have to steal that idea sometime if you don't mind. Brilliant! Thanks for linking this wonderful card up with us over at Seize the Birthday.
