Twine!


It's Anything goes at Simon Says Stamps Challenge and usually its not my favourite challenge but this week I was looking forward to it.
Photobucket

I had in my Simon Says Stamps parcel a pack of Kaiser Magnolia Grove and I knew I was going to get all distressed. First I choose my image another Sarah Kay Babette cuddling a kitten this time, I may have coloured all that I brought now.
I had to use the my new Spellbinders Floral Ovals and I used Kraft card to match the Kaiser papers.  Distress all the edges with a pair of scissors cos I couldn't find my Tim Holtz distressing tool and I used distress inkpad and blending tool round the edges to hide the white core.
Just needed to add the lace and ribbon.
Whoops I've done it again this week the DT are showcasing Twine its not necessary to enter the challenge using it but I was. The twine I got from Simon Says Stamps is Hemptique Bright with the intention to make a mans card. Suddenly the reason why I haven't got rid of the few copics that I have. Testing a couple of colours to make sure I got the right one, I then coloured the beige twine to match my card.
Thread it through the lace and tied a bow. I couldn't bear to hide the pretty roses paper with a sentiment so just added some pearls.
Do hope you can join us this and been in for a chance to win this brilliant prize and don't forget to check out the team.
