Little bit of red...

A quick post today.

My entry for Itsy Bitsy's Make It Dimensional challenge and Indian Craft Room's ICRC 22: Monochromatic + Letter Family challenge.

I had seen a cute little basket on the blog The Little Blue Room by Rachel Ricks sometime back. Rachel was kind enough to include a detailed tutorial (thanx a ton, Rachel!). When I saw Itsy Bitsy's challenge, I knew I had to make this basket!

Indian Craft Room's challenge was a tough one. A monochromatic project with a letter family. So I chose the colour Red and used white rickrack and a rhinestone for embellishment.

I used a red leaf shaped rhinestone to accentuate the punched butterfly. Wanted to keep it simple, so used minimum embellishments. The sentiment stamp is by Micia and used Faber Castell's red stamp pad. The red jingle bell was an after thought. But it adds a bit of whimsy and sounds so sweet when the basket is carried!

These baskets are definitely on my Diwali list; they are just so handy for giving small gifts, sweets, chocolates etc!
