Clean And Simple Challenge #26 and Sketch Challenge #240

This card is for this week's Clean And Simple Stitching Challenge at Splitcoaststampers:

I knew immediately I wanted to use the punny new release HANGING OUT from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS LLC:

First I stamped the clothes line in black then I paper pierced the line and with two strands of DMC black floss I stitched across.

This card is also for yesterday's Sketch Challenge #240 at Splitcoaststampers:

I kept the card black and white. So for the circle, I used my coluzzle to make a ring for the circle in the sketch and for the back panel, I used the EK circles border punch that I bought at Michaels in Bakersfield (don't have this one at my local Michaels).

I used this striped ribbon to add some color and added a bit of black ribbon to keep with the black and masculine since this card is for my son. I used different sized brads in the punched border circles for the finishing touch.

My son's favorite color is green thus the green briefs which I watercolored with Tombow markers on watercolor paper.

Thank you for visiting.
