Theme Day Thursday-- Laundry

Today is Theme Day Thursday at Erica's Craft Room.  Today's theme is laundry.  While I'm not a big fan of laundry, I am a fan of creating a scene.  I had this scene instantly come to mind.

My card base is 6x6.  I started by stamping my palm tree trunks, then the palm leaves.  I used two different colors of green to stamp my leaves, angled differently each time.  The palm tree stamp set is from The Stamps of Life.  Next I stamped my Cowboy stamp (stamp is from Rubbernecker stamps).  I colored my cowboy and the palm tree trunks with copic markers.  I used Non-Smear Pastels chalk to make my grass and my sky.

My laundry line was made using the Country Life Cricut cartridge.  I cut the blackout feature of the laundry line at 2 inches.  I then cut the layers only, also at 2 inches.  I glued twine down to represent the laundry line. I used stickles to make my "clothes pins".

Thanks for looking!  Be sure to visit Erica's Craft room to see more projects with today's theme.

Have an awesome day!
