Rosie's Washing Day


I hope you're feeling good today :)

I'm busy getting ready to go on holiday at the moment, so just a quick Thank You card to show today.

I used the lovely Polkadoodles bunny and the image reflects my day perfectly - sunny, breezy and plenty washing to get through!

The digital image is called Rosie Washing Day 

I die cut around the image with a Cottage Cutz Stitched Rectangle, then coloured the image with Spectrum Noir markers. I outlined the image in pale grey, but decided it needed a bit more colour, so I blended TH Peacock Feathers ink very lightly, keeping the die in place so that the image has a white stitched border. I made an oops! - can you spot it?

The background is Retro Floral DP from Papermania. Here comes that pink and green combo again - I love these colours together and so that's why this paper is one of my favourites. I matted the DP onto black card, popped the image onto a black mat as well and added the image on foam pads. Thin raspberry coloured ribbon was attached along the bottom before the DP was adhered to the card base. 

I made some flowers from white card stock using a hand held X-Cut punch. The flowers were colour washed using TH Picked Raspberry and when dry were shaped and a pearl added to the centre of each one. The sentiment is from Papermania  - I punched a hole to make it into a tag and threaded ribbon through before attaching it on foam pads.

Thanks for stopping by today. 
Have a great weekend!
