Washing Day for Polkadoodles

Hello lovely peeps.

It's time for a new challenge at Polkadoodles. The theme for the next fortnight is Spring Pastels. 

First I covered my A5 card with a paper from the Pretty Sweet CD.  Next I printed off two versions of Rosie Washing Day from the Cherryblossom Lane CD. One has a fence in the background so I used that for my first layer. The other is plainer so I was able to trace around it with my Craft Robo software for printing and cutting.  I also printed and cut some extra roses and decoupaged all the elements on top of the background.

 For the sentiment topper I've used two stamps from the Sensational Sentiments stamp sheet. I inked up the scalloped circle with Versamark (to make it nice and sticky) and then Dried Marigold Distress Ink over the top (for colour). After stamping onto white card I sprinkled it with clear embossing powder and heat set. I stamped a greeting in the middle with black memento ink and cut the whole thing out with an X-cut circle die. I've attached it to my card with a mini wooden peg.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Hiding in my Craft Room #241 - Spring Colors

Inspiration Destination  #76 Always Anything Goes
