Spirelli Snowman

Today's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE is to use twine.

I tried the Spirelli Technique following the tutorial on splitcoaststampers. I used DMC Floss Pearlescent Effects E5200 (5272). I used a single strand. I used long lengths taping them to the back at the ends. In order to get the size border I wanted I spaced my floss six scallops between.

I used three sets from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS:

STAMPS:Little Snowman, It's A Wonderful Life, Season's Tweetings (Clear Dollar Stamps)
PAPER:Cottonball White, Tropical Mist (Clear Dollar Stamps)
INK:Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Walnut Stain
ACCESSORIES:DMC Floss Pearlescent Effects E5200 (5272), Tim Holtz Blender Tool, Spellbinders Scallop Circles, Cuttlebug, Score Tape, Scotch dimensional tape, crystal stickers, Crystal Effects (SU), Dazzling Diamonds (SU)
TECHNIQUES:Spirelli, Paper Tole
