Hang in There {Purple Onion Designs}

Hi there. I hope you are having a great week so far. I have another card for you from the Purple Onion Designs A Happy Little Place collection illustrated by the extremely talented artist Stacey Yacula. 

I went more old school with the design of this card, meaning I used several pieces of patterned paper and also some lumpy embellishments. I cut the tag from Copic friendly cardstock, stamped the Clothesline onto it adding patterned paper at the top and bottom of the tag. To prepare the card front I used a stencil and distress ink on the background. It turned out a little brighter yellow than I wanted so I mixed some white acrylic paint with water and sponged it over the yellow to tone it down. An easy fix! I added patterned paper strips for the bottom border, then attached the tag to the card front. I clustered a small tag with a heart, the sentiment from the Around the Town Sentiment Set stamped onto black cardstock with Versamark white embossing power and attached to the top of the tag with a cluster of cording.  At that point, I though I was through but at the last minute I decided to add Anna (fox) which I fussy cut out after coloring then attached to the background with a small white cardstock circle using dimensionals for some added texture.
