Time for another Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog posting...and a very fun theme this week too! SSCB#14's theme is Basket Case. We were challenged to use one of Serendipity's many, many basket stamps as our focal point. When I say many, many, I really do mean it. Here's a link the the basket section of the Serendipity Store, Lots and lots to choose from. Everyone on the Serendipity Design Team chose a different basket to show you the wide range of baskets just waiting to be stamped and colored. I chose an image that isn't specifically a basket, although there is a basket on the stamp. Wonder what I chose?
I chose the cutest little bicycle which coincidentally has a great basket on the handlebars. I have a bicycle just like this at home now and I would love to have a basket in front to carry all the odds and ends I take with me when I ride. The stamp is Bicycle and was colored with copics and cut by hand. I also shaded the basket with a brown copic and added those cute balloons and balloon string by Lil Inker. The patterned papers are My Mind's Eye (Come Away With Me). The great sentiment that was stamped on a speech bubble die cut is also from Serendipity (Everyday Sentiments, small). I added a tiny bit of bling just because I felt like it. Ready to see some more baskets in action? Make sure to check out all the other Design Team members posts and when you are done, I hope you will play along with this week's challenge. You can get all the details over at the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog. If you are the lucky winner, you can win $20 off your next Serendipity Stamp order. That's it for me...enjoy the other cards!
