AUG11VSNMINI2 - Wanna Hang Out?

Friday night my hubby and I just hung in.  We had prior plans, but they got cancelled, but I was OK with that because it meant crafting up some cards.  I logged on to Splitcoast Stampers and they were having their Virtual Stamp Night, so I took it upon myself to participate in "The Queen's Wave" challenges - to create a card that had to do with 'waves/waving' etc.  One of the examples was clothes on a line waving in the wind.  I never inked up my There She Goes clothesline stamp, so I thought it would be a great time!

I paper pieced the clothes and used distress inks for sky.  A light coloring with prisma pencils and used up those scraps from my DCWV Citrus pack and it was done!!

Hope you had a great weekend!!!  Happy August :)


Thanks for your visit!

This is so, so cute, Maria! Love those papers and colors, and what a fun clothesline image. I so love the paper piecing, and your background coloring is fabulous. The sentiment clipped on with a clothespin is just the perfect touch with this. Love it!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this card! Great papers. Check out the paper piecing with the fussy cutting. Your coloring of the back ground is fabulous.
