Not a card

This week the challenge at Critter Sketch is anything but a card. This wall hanging was created using a plaque I bought decades ago when I was doing tole painting. I stained it using walnut distress stain. The off white background is gesso which I stamped a basketweave stamp into and then highlighted with wild honey distress ink. The basket is a wood paper diecut using a Heartfelt Creations/spellbinders die. The flowers and leaves are cut from Coke Zero cans and colored using alcohol inks. The flower centers are brads with antique linen distress stickles.
