Clearly Besotted April Teasers Day 2

Hello! I’m glad you enjoyed yesterday’s set. Today is another fun one starring a sentiment as the whole concept behind the card and two tiny fish. The sentiment is from the new set ‘Brighter Days’ and the little fish..from ‘Freshwater Friends’. When I saw the sentiment I knew exactly what type of card I was going to create..

It’s a really simple card. One you can make with two basic punches or circle dies. You just need a white frame. I added acetate behind but it’s not necessary. I used the negative left from diecutting the frame to colour in some water with alcohol markers and stamp and colour the fish.

The towel is (oddly enough!) a piece of towel. I just added some red liner tape behind the frame and attached it and the towel to the tent folded card base.

I tried to make it more realistic by adding details on the handle using scrap pieces and also mimicked the washing buttons to the right of the sentiment. It took my husband a little while to work out that it was a washing machine, so I’m hoping you have better luck 😉

I have a friend in mind who this would be perfect for (she’s no fan of laundry either!!). It’s time to head over to Clearly Besotted’s blog then Michelle, Lisa plus the lovely Francine Vuilleme & Kitty Day

See you tomorrow to meet a fun little guy!

    What a great idea, Keren! You can instantly see that it’s a washing machine! I love how you have used the fish inside and added the actual towel. Fantastic! xx

    Who enjoy’s laundry…not me. It’s a mindless activity during which I can think about other things. This card is right up my alley as well as your friend’s. I laughed out loud when I read the sentiment and realized what you’d done with the washing machine door. You are the most brilliant cardmaker, ever.
