Inkspirations Challenge #94 - Socks on the Line

Hope everyone has had a great week & is ready for another Inkspirations Challenge.  This week we have these fun colours to play with:-

When I first saw the new stitched stocking set, my initial thought was of socks on the washing line, so that's what I've done:-

To get the pair of socks I stamped them on white tissue paper.  I glued one sock to a piece of white cardstock & then, when it was dry, punched it out.  With the other sock, I punched the tissue with a piece of white cardstock at the same time, so the tissue didn't get caught in the punch.  Then I flipped it over so it faced in the opposite direction to the first sock & then glued it to the white cardstock sock.

The socks have been popped up on dimensionals & "pegged" to the baker's twine line with heart "pegs" from the owl punch.

I wish I had a sentiment that said something like "a perfect pair", but sadly I don't, so I inked up portions of the Short & Sweet sentiments & made my own equation.

Hope my wonderful hubby likes it - our anniversary is coming up soon.

The rest of the Team have some fantastic projects to share with you & we would love it if you could join us in the Challenge.  Here are the links:-

BTW, there were no paper flowers in sight in this post, but I just had to share this one:-

This was made by my DS (a 20yo engineering student) who usually gives me a hard time over my papercrafting, with comments such as "are you doing paper again Mum?"

He pestered me to help him make a card for his girlfriend's birthday.  He wanted a flower, so I explained to him how to make a slider card & he made this (all by himself).  He was pretty chuffed with how it turned out & I was pretty chuffed that he wanted to make it.  Young love!  Happy Birthday Cassy!  :)
