I have two cards today to share using the same stamps and paints
I just LOVE,LOVE how this card turned out.
I used   F166-Basket,   

I used the following Creative Inspirations Paint
Aqua Marine, Evergreen, Orange,Tanzanite,Garnet,Burnt Sienna,Amethyst,Mint,Autumn Wheat
I started by stamping the basket and lightly colored and then went to work with my paints.I chose to fussy cut and pop dot with a bow so it looks like a circular basket.
The wreath was stamped right on the background paper and painted.
here is a side view so you can see the shine.

I am entering these challenges:
Crafty Purple Frog Challenge-Pink and Girly
Divas By Design-Favorite thing (vintage papers)
Craft-Room Challenge-Vintage Shabby
Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge-Pink & Girly

My second card is using the same supplies as above with a different spin.This time I chose to color and cut the wreath also. Love this sweet sentiment! Isn't it perfect for the design?
Here is a close up of the basket and wreath- can you really see all the shine?
I know I will be using these beautiful stamps again.

I hated to quit designing.
