Design with Twine

This is the current Scrappy Saturday Challenge over at Wee Memories, and I have had this idea in my head since I read that post, so I decided to participate, what fun!

Paper: All cardstock by PTI
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Pumice Stone Distress Ink
Stamps: Hero Arts
Other: Heart shapes (Cricut), PTI Mat Stack Die, PTI Impression Plate, Twine (The Twinery), Glitter, Glossy Accents, Crackle Accents

The hearts were cut out using my Cricut machine which has been collecting dust, (too many toys!).  I then applied a thin line of glossy accents (favourite adhesive) around the perimeter of each heart and gently applied the Pink Sorbet Twine from the twinery in two rows.  Then I covered the centre of the hearts with more glossy accents and added pink glitter to it whilst it was still wet.  Once dry, I applied Crackle Accents, and did it crackle!  Hooray!  This one really looks like broken glass in real life, I hope you can see it in the photo.  The hearts were then adhered to cardstock which I had first impressed with a PTI Alphabet impression plate, very subtle look.

The butterfly background was created by stamping two different butterflies from my favorite Hero Arts set, Antique Engravings, using Pumice Stone Distress Ink.  I lightly inked the edges with the same ink.  I love this soft colour.  And grey is the new black apparently! The sentiment is also from Hero Arts.

I hope that you have had a glorious Tuesday!  It was another very cold day here today, but this afternoon the sun peeked out from behind the clouds, and that always makes me happy!
