I started by printing out the Kidz Flower Basket onto my card stock and coloured with Copics. The background was then coloured with blue and green chalks. The Spellbinders die cut was edged with blue chalk ink. I then cut a larger brown die cut and then used the largest die to cut the card base.

My background was made with a technique that was the challenge this month on my NZ crafters forum. You add paints to your embossing folder and then close the folder and press with your fingers to transfer the paint to your watercolour card. Once it all dried, I ran it through my Cuttlebug with ...
