Challenge #69 has begun at Simply Create Too and it's titled "Show Us Something New". Now, my new schtuff is coming back with me when I return from the US, but I'm sharing a card I made with a new twist on an old technique. Remember string art?
Note: After I had made the aforementioned card, DD made me a string art work of art for Mother's Day. She painted a piece of plywood cream, put the nails into it and threaded the heart with red thread. Love it.
So, that probably inspired me ...
Get it? I probably either should have stopped at about two feet less thread or used a darker red CS for the die cut "you" so that it would be more visible, but I still like the idea of "have you in my heart" that this technique enables.
I pierced holes around the edge of a heart die and then randomly stitched around and across the heart. I adhered the "you" halfway through the process and then the strip of washi at the bottom of the panel. Adhered the panel to the cardbase and voila!
Thanks for looking.
Supplies for you in my heart:
Paper: CS Bringmann, PP Studio Calico
Tools: heart die Sizzix, you die Simon Says Stamp
Other: thread, washi Freckled Fawn
