A basket full of love

Noooo... today is out last challenge over at the Outlawz Sketch team with Rick St Dennis!  I'm a huge fan and will definitely be using his images in future :)
All the links to his sites can be found on the Outlawz Sketch team challenge for October 2015.

For my last bit of inspiration I'm sharing my version of Basket of Love.  I've coloured this with ProMarkers in pale shades apart from the red so it draws your eye in (hopefully!)  It's been cut out with a Spellbinders die, inked with antique linen and distressed.

I've added in a few flowers to compliment the image.  The daisy's and hortensias are from Kort and Godt available at Live and Love Crafts

The design papers from Lili of the Valley have had some antique linen ink from Tim Holtz applied to the edges and then distressed.  The lace (which is actually a piece cut in half) has been hanging around in my stash for a while.  Those tiny pearl strips have also been in my stash for a long time I tend to use the larger ones more often.

The sentiment which has been coloured with ProMakers is a Lili of the Valley on from one of their art pads.

Finally onto the gold organza ribbon and pearl gems - these were also from my stash.

This is your last chance to be in with a chance to win some Rick St Dennis images!
