I finally have some Waltzingmouse stamps to use on the WMS sketch...I just got some new ones in the mail last week and I love using them! I used Pic-Nic Patterns for the background, and Spring Baskets for the basket, eggs & sentiment. Love this set!
For the PDCC colors I chose Creme Brulee, Hollyhock & Petal cardstock. Then I distressed everything up quite a bit because I was going for a more muted, vintage look. Gotta love those Distress Inks to achieve this goal. The final touch was a couple spritzes of some shimmer spray in "Treasured Hymn" (that's the color name...cool, huh?) It's a light creamy beige with lots of shine. I added a detail shot so the shimmer can be seen a little better.
In this shot the double layer of the basket & eggs can be seen a little better.
