A Lovely "Red" Day

Hello AO lovers! I am in love with A Lovely Day stamp set! You can use the image of the little girl (I named her Hannah) and fill her basket up with all sorts of goodies...flowers, shamrocks, eggs, bunnies, you name it, or glittered Valentines as seen here. The bicycle as well has an even larger basket to fill up! Can you tell I'm a container lover? She also has the sweetest, most innocent looking face. I love her as my own.
Hannah and her bicycle were stamped in Jet Black Archival Ink, cut out, and colored in using Glaze Pens, watercolor pencils, and a Marvy Pigmented Marker. The sentiment was stamped in Festive Berries Distress Ink and heat embossed with Fired Brick Distress Embossing Powder, then given a coat of Crackle Accents. However, it has decided to bleed underneath. I'm trying to figure that one out, but it looks really vintage, so que sera sera!
I hope you have a wonderful creative Saturday. Maybe you'll make a little "red" something for our Referral Program Challenge. I hope you enter. I'll see you next Saturday!
Anita Houston, Guest Designer

Terrific use of this set, Anita. I love the way you embellish your images! I honestly would never have thought to fill up her basket - very clever!
