There are so many options for Vintage Picnic. Many of you are joining the Copic craze...and all of the stamps in Vintage Picnic can be colored with Copics. I hope to be showing you lots of coloring tips to help you out. You can also paper piece the baskets with patterned paper like I've done here using Wild Raspberry K & Company paper. Here's a great tip for all you Copic users: Use grey colored Copics to add shadows to your paper pieced baskets. The patterned paper looks great by itself but you can add extra pizazz by adding some shading. You want to use light greys that won't overpower the patterned paper. For my project today I used T1. Just a little shading under the lid and basket handles...and a little more down the sides and bottom of the basket......and you're good to go. If the shading is too dark, lighten it up by using your Coloress Blender (0). Zoom in on the photo below to see the shading close up.
As for the other pretty details on my card: I love the greenish/blue of the patterned paper paired with Lemon Tart Satin Ribbon, Vintage Buttons in Lemon Tart and Sweet Blush, both tied with Rustic Twine. And be sure to scroll back up to the first photo. I love to add sentiments to little toppers I create by using a large Spellbinder's Scalloped Square Nestabilities Die Template. Just die cut and emboss a square and then cut off about 1" to use as a topper. Don't you just love the fonts Nichole chose for Vintage Picnic? The vintage looking typewriter font paired with script is so lovely.
I'll be thinking of all you girls staying up late to get your Papertrey goodies. Let me know what ya got, okay?
