Heartfelt Creations: Wash Day...

Hello!  I created a scrapbook layout for today, using stamps, dies and paper from Heartfelt Creations.  I found the vintage photo of the lady hanging wash on-line.  I love finding old photos in both antique stores and on the net.  I really wish I had a photo of my grandma hanging wash on the line in her back yard.  I used to love to help her.  I would run through the sheets as they were hanging, because I loved that fresh smell!
You can find the product list and the complete instructions for recreating this page below:

Stamp Summer Season image onto white cardstock with black ink. Color with Prisma Pencils or coloring medium of your choice. Distress edges with Old Paper distress ink. Use Ornate Gateway die and cut from white paper one decorative piece and adhere to bottom of Summer season image.  Cut a 4" x 6" piece of pink Daphne patterned paper.  Stamp lace image from Summer Season set towards top in Versarmark ink and then sprinkle with clear embossing powder mixed with fine glitter. Use heat tool to set.  Use Thicker's alphabet letters to spell "WASH DAY" under embossed area on pink panel.  Adhere half pearls under "day".  Stamp and color rose image and use coordinating  Bella Rose die to cut. Adhere finished rose to white tag and distress edges with Old Paper ink.  Tie Baker's twine bow through top of tag and add a mini clothes pin to the top.  Cut paper doily in half.  Now layer everything onto center of 12 x 12 Daphene patterned paper as seen in photo.  I used foam dimensionals on the tag and the Summer Season image.  Last, add two clothespins to top corners of colored Summer Season image square.  Attach a piece of baker's twine and loop it through the clothes pins and let the extra hang down.  I tacked my down with a tiny drop of glue on each side.

Such a fun, vintage vibe going on here. Love the way you incorporated the stamp with the photo...that is just so clever. And the "clothesline" is just the perfect touch.
