Wishing You Well

I am enjoying the Dare to Get Dirty (DTGD) challenges on SCS. Today is the last day of challenges and we have until August 1 to upload our creations. I actually started a challenge journal to keep track of them all!
This card was made for several challenges, including a non DTGD challenge - Sharon Johnson's ssnotime97 Fruit of the Vine. The DTGD challenges I included are TruCarma's Good Enough to Eat, Cindy Haffner's sketch, and KristyLee's Clearly Creative.
I used PaperTrey (PTI) Vintage Picnic stamp set and was going for a country picnic type feel so I selected the Memory Box papers. The card base is PTI Lemon Tart. I stamped the basket twice on two different patterned papers and the apples once. I colored the apples with Koh-i-nor pencils and baby oil. I paper pieced the basket. I added Diamond Glaze to the apples to make them shine. After stamping the sentiment I cut and matted the image with my classic and scalloped circle Nestabilities. This was a fun and easy sketch!
Thanks for coming by!

Supplies: Stamps - PaperTrey Vintage Picnic; Ink - Versafine Onyx Black; Paper - PaperTrey Lemon Tart, Memory Box Homespun; Misc - Nestabilities, Dimensionals, Koh-i-nor pencils, Baby Oil, Diamond Glaze
