- Ink up bear border image with brown ink pad and stamp at top of basket on the panel under the handle. Re-ink and stamp at the bottom.
- Clean stamp. Ink up two bears next to each other and stamp side ways on left side.
- Clean stamp. Ink up the other two bears and stamp side ways on the right side.
- Color images blending two markers from the same color family. Color little bears with brown marker. NOTE: You can see where I practiced coloring on spot that would be covered up. It's a good idea to test your colors on the surface of your project before you color your final image.
- Ink up diaper pin with pink pad and stamp along sides of basket.
- For the next step, mask off the sides of the basket to apply color only on the front panel. Turn the ink pad so that the individual ink pads are
vertical. Ink up small brayer by moving in one direction to pick up ink.
- To apply ink with brayer on basket, roll it up and down in the same area, moving just slightly to the left and right to blend the colors. Roll over the entire basket including the handle. You will notice the pattern of the handle shows up in your coloring. Ink up again and brayer over only the panel area of the basket to create a nice blend.
- Turn basket around 180 degrees so you can work on the other side. Repeat previous step.
- Color It's a Girl image with pink marker and stamp on white card stock. Cut image out with deco edge die cut.
- Add glitter on flower pedals and centers with pen. Adhere to brayered side of basket.
- Stamp bear border image on tissue paper with pink and brown ink pads.
