February's ATC Trade

Dear Reader,

Yesterday was another Artist Trading Card trade.   February's themes were dangle or undergarments (I know sort of a provocative grouping).  I chose to sign up for the undergarments theme...I thought I would go the corset route.  Monday when I seriously contemplated my design another idea came to me.  I carved out a few simple shapes: boxers, bra and panties (otherwise if I owned it I would have used swimsuit season by Lawn Fawn which would have been perfect!) for a cheery clothesline look. 

The background stamp is one of my all-time favorites by Hero Arts (S5215) as I love clouds (it must be a little of the 80's rubbing off on me).

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy creating,

Thanks, Shay! I love your ATC! How clever of you to carve your own stamps--I would not even have considered the option--very creative. And the clouds are perfect with the embossing on top.
