I scrubbed the Jello mold with the Tim Holtz sanding block to rough it up (please don't hate me, Jello mold purists) then gave it a coat of Gesso. I added some acrylic paint, then dabbed on Distress Paint in Peacock Feathers, Picket Fence and Tumbled Glass. I decided it needed some more oomph, so I stamped some text (Hero Arts "Word Pops" set), then punched circles out of the text. I inked them up, added some embroidery floss around the edges, then stuck them to my cart base.
Around the top, I wrapped some silver Tim Holtz Tinsel Twine and yarn. I also utilized his Found Relatives to create the occupants for my cart. I covered their dresses with scraps of Washi and gave them some traveling hats.
I added some bottle cap wheels and an umbrella made from scraps of fabric. I finished it off with a great little quote using the "Away We Go" stamp set. Looks to me like they're ready for adventure!
Here are some of the supplies I used, which you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
