With Love

Happy Friday! Hope everyone is gearing up for a great weekend! I am hoping that this wet weather goes away for a few days so that I can get some washing done - how about you?

And since it's Friday I'm here to share this week's AnnaBelle Stamps challenge with you. It's time to use some twine!

I am fairly unimaginative when it comes to twine and ribbon... the most daring thing I do is a knot instead of a bow ;) So this card is totally me:

Stampwise I used the silhouette image from All Things Grow with Love and the sentiment from Squared Mother's Day. I inked the silhouette with Umber Versacolor and then around the top with Pinecone Versacolor. The sentiment was stamped with Pinecone.

I dyed some Natural Hemp Twine with ink from a brown Marvy marker diluted with water and waited for it to dry. Once dry I looped it around the top panel where I had already stamped the silhouette and sentiment and tied a bow. The cardstock is lovely textured Canson Vivaldi cardstock in 'Cream'.

I hope that this card has inspired you just a little bit! Check out the links below to see what my fellow DT members have created this week - their amazing creations show how versatile twine can be!
