Love KNOTS

This is week three as Guest Designer for
THE OUTLAWS CHALLENGE BLOG SITE
CAS CHALLENGE


This week's challenge is to use BAKER'S TWINE.
I was inspired by the current issue of Paper Craft's Magazine.
In there...there's a feature on french knots. So I decided to play with them.

I traced my heart onto my panel with pencil. Then poked my holes 1/4" apart with my paper piercer. I erased my lines and made my french knots. I used a size 20 Tapestry needle, threaded my Divine Twine with a green plastic threader and wrapped my thread around three times to make each knot. A little timely but easy!

My sentiment in the middle is from the set JIBBER JABBER from THE ALLEY WAY STAMPS. I used Whisper White Craft ink pad from Stampin Up and White Top Boss Embossing Powder.

RECIPE:
STAMPS:Jibber Jabber (The Alley Way Stamps)
PAPER:Cottonball White, Strawberry Jam (Clear Dollar Stamps)
INK:Whisper White (Stampin' Up)
ACCESSORIES:Divine Twine, paper piercer and piercing mat (We R Memory Keepers), 20 Tapestry needle, Needle threader, Anti-static pouch, Top Boss White Embossing powder, Heat Tool, Score Tape, Scotch dimensional tape
TECHNIQUES:French knots, Heat Embossing

THANK YOU FOR VISITING. ENJOY YOUR DAY.
