Anything But a Card Challenge 11 Tie it Up!



Hello everyone!  We are now into the second week of the Anything But a Card Challenge 11: Tie it up!  The challenge is easy and leave a lot of room for exploring- use ribbon, twine, wire, lace, cording, trims, etc,  as long as theoretically it could be tied!

I made a bookmark/tag using some twine and ribbon.  I glued two tags together for sturdiness.  I had painted the tags with orange paint from another project, then added some White Picket Fence Distress stain at the top. I used some Tim Holtz stickers and another brand for the sentiment, then added some metal brads.  The image is from Dilly Beans printed on Kraft card stock. I added a bit of color from copics and some googlie eyes.  The tassel is more twine frayed.

Challenges:
Dilly Beans- add metal accents
My Time to Craft- things with wings

I love all of the orange on this and the twine is fabulous! The sentiment just makes me smile...I'm sure some of my books have felt this way over the years!
