Washing on the line...

I made today's card for this week's Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge...use real or faux stitching somewhere on your card/project. I purchased this lovely stamp by Print Blocks Australia about 15 years ago but have never used it on a card...I'm not sure who I would give this to...I think it would be nice framed and given as a gift.

Growing up in Australia we always hung our clothes on the clothesline to dry but I now live in New Hampshire and I don't even own a clothesline...I guess it's not very practical for the weather here! Anyway, I thought it was the perfect image to incorporate stitching...I stamped the image twice, airbrushed one with Copics and coloured the details on the other before cutting them out and gluing them onto the airbrushed one...I would normally mask the details before airbrushing but those little chickens would have been very fiddly...I nearly lost one cutting them out!
