Hambo Stamps Heart Basket


Help I'm totally obsessed with this sketch!

This is Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge #403 from last week and I can't stop using it, lol...
Am I the only one that does this?  I have to see it in every color with all the different stamps and papers I can imagine - you know all the possibilities?  I think the reason I'm so in love with this sketch is it's simplicity.
It just speaks to me...in a good way, easy now 8-)

The stamp I used is a Hambo Stamps digital stamp set called Heart Basket, I colored it with Copic markers:

Hearts - RV14, RV23
Basket - W1, W3, W4, W5
Background/Outline - BG0000, BG11

I don't use my Red Violet Copic markers very often and wanted to give them a try today.
I pulled out a sheet of Papertrey Ink's Hibiscus Burst card stock and matched it pretty closely to my markers.  Since I was matting in black I didn't want to make my basket brown so I colored it using warm grays, they're gray but have a brownish hue to them.  

For card stocks I used Via Vellum Black, Mohawk Bright White, Papertrey Ink Hibiscus Burst, X Press It blending card.  Other supplies used are Spellbinders Circles dies and a We R Memory Keepers 1/8th inch corner chomper.  The sentiment is part of the digital stamp set so it's printed on the white panel.
Quick, easy and fun!
