Tying One On?

It's Saturday, and that means it's time for a new Drunken Stampers challenge! When you see the theme of this week's challenge, I'm sure you'll understand why I couldn't quite resist my blog post title...



Keeping with the person, place or thing theme, our "thing" this week is twine! Or if you prefer, string or hemp. I'd imagine jute would sneak in under the challenge guidelines, as well. I went with classic baker's twine:



When I saw this cute Up and Away set by Mama Elephant (animals? balloons?), I knew it would enjoy living at my house. But I have a small confession... I'm not entirely sure what this animal is! Some kind of cuter-than-real-life badger, perhaps? He's the one I wanted to use, so I decided I didn't really care. I stamped him again on a sticky note and cut him out to use as a mask to stamp the balloons. I coloured everything with Twinkling H2Os so there's a subtle shimmer, especially to the balloons. And of course he's floating through the sky! It was one of those rare occasions when a paper and a twine matched perfectly. I also liked how the polka-dot paper echoed the round balloons. 
So break out your twine or twine-like materials, and come join us! 


Supplies: white cardstock, My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Fly a Kite patterned papers, Mama Elephant Up and Away stamps, Versafine onyx black ink, Zing clear embossing powder, Twinkling H2Os, Twinery Caribbean twine, Creative Memories corner-rounding punch, pop-dot tape

Totally adorable card Lindsey!! Love that you colored the image as a badger! It could also be a fox. I don't know, I'm not quite sure what it is either! LOL! But loved how you colored him! Great job!

Hmmm... he is a bit of a mystery creature isn't he? A cute one though so he can get away with it. That cloud paper is perfect and I like how the dots tie everything together!
