Say it with…Twine

Posted by on March 23, 2012 in Annabelle Stamps | 15 comments

Happy Friday,

Welcome to another challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps. This week is an awesome challenge and one I have been looking forward to! Say it with twine…who doesn’t love twine? And it was even easier for me as Andrea has the most excellent twine in store…I LOVE the new 0.8mm twine that comes in so many awesome colours! Check them out here.

(tag – ac068)

I had so much fun making this card and I love how it turned out!

I created the twine flowers by sticking a large glue dot onto the back of each button. I then cut small lengths of twine and created each petal.Β  I then adhered each flower to the card with Glossy Accents. I added some shading to the stems and leaves with a green Prismacolor pencil.
