Drunken Stampers Challenge #137`~~~ Twine

The second challenge for team Yellow Canary…woohoo, the theme for this challenge is Thing……Twine, string or hemp.  Head over to the Drunken Stampers Challenge Blog to check out what the other Yellow Canaries have done to inspire you to join us for the challenge.
I used one of my favourite stamp company stamps….House Mouse Designs. I just purchased this stamp at the Butterfly Moon, my favourite stamp store. Check them out on their Facebook Page.
I coloured the image with prisma pencil crayons and oms. It is a fairly large image so not a lot of room to design on an A2 card. I had made the sailor’s knot for another project but decided it wasn’t quite what i wanted, Upon finding it in my odds and ends box I knew it was perfect for the challenge. I punched holes beside the pot and threaded the twine through, I added another scrap of twine to the button.
Stamp…..The Thinker featuring Amanda
Cardstock…..Crumb Cake, Old Olive, GP white
Patterned paper….DCWV Green Stack Pad
Accessories….button from the button jar, twine from the Dollar store
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you take time to join us at the Drunken Stampers  for the challenge.
