It’s photo inspiration week at Just Us Girls. The inspiration is a lovely wooden tub with purple flowers. I used the wooden tub from Beyond Baskets by Gina K Designs. The flowers are from Botanical Medallions and Banners by JustRite colored with Prismas – Violet and Kelly Green. I colored the flowers lightly, then went over the inner section of each petal again to shade a bit, then blended with the blending pencil. Then I fussy cut them. I couldn’t decide what color to make the centers so ended up using some bling from my stash. I used a die from the Crochet Lace set by Tim Holtz and lightly sponged with Antique Linen Distress Oxide. I die cut a tiny rectangle then stamped the sentiment from Mini Tag Sentiments by Divinity Designs. For the “stick” to hold the sentiment in the flowers I used the stem from the wheat stalk from the Autumn Bouquet Fancy Die set by Hero Arts – which is one of my new favorite dies. I found the yellow gingham piece that I had die cut for a previous project and never used – it made a perfect background.

    1. Thanks Diana. I enjoy using the baskets. I tried to use two of the fillers from the Spring Basket sets for the first time and neither stamped well, so I went to the JustRite set.

    1. Thanks Lisa. I’ve had a lot of fun with the baskets. The gingham was a happy accident. The purple gingham in the PP pack didn’t work at all.

  1. Judy, this is a great card. I know you can only see a bit of it, but I love that little peek of the “lace”. The centers of the flowers are just right.

    1. Thanks Golda. This was the first time I’d used the lace die. They’re very intricate dies and need to have a lot of the tiny pieces poked out, but I really like the result.

  2. Beautiful basket of flowers. Your coloring and fussy cutting are perfect. Gingham is the perfect background for that basket.
