Kiss Me Basket
One more little St. Patrick's Day project. This is another easy one... didn't take long at all to put together so that you can mass produce if you want to. It holds six Hershey Nuggets.
The basket pattern I found here. VERY cool huh? Very clear, easy to follow instructions... thanks so much for sharing this awesome little basket Claire!
I used the stamp set called Kiss Me, I'm Irish, by Our Craft Lounge. I spayed the nugget labels with my Copic Airbrush system. I used a light green, then used the brush tip with a darker green to leave little splat marks all over. I stamped the same border stamp on the labels (using black ink), then colored some of them in with ink, and some with the atyou Spica Pens.. so they shine and shimmer!
I added a scallop punch with the sentiment to the top of the handle and cute little four leaf clover flowers to each end. LOVE the gold atyou Spica pen! It really brought it all together to coordinate with the brushed gold cardstock I used for the liner of the basket and as a layer on the sentiment.
