Twinery Challenge #8 and Make It Monday #129

Did you know that there is a challenge going on at the Twinery? This is the inspiration picture:


                                                                


It inspired me to make a card for my son's best friends upcoming birthday.



It was kind of tricky to wrap the twine around the numbers - especially with the 1 - I started with that one. The 2 went better - I figured out how to do that. The trick is glossy accents on the back of the number....
I used some Washi tape and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches - Sentiment sampler. The "th" is from the word "thanks" partially inked up....

And here is another card I made - this is for the Make It Monday challenge. Heather Campbell is reviving the white crayon resist technique. It is pretty simple, but it does not come out exact. The crayon does not cover an area well, so there may be little areas uncovered, which will pick up ink, when you go over it with your blending tool or sponge.... 


I still kind of like it, although it reminds me a bit about Swiss cheese...

I used the Papertrey Polka Dot Basics set. The sentiment is Papertrey Wonderful Words Hello.

Have a great day and thanks for visiting my blog!

Hallo Cornelia,
beide Karten gefallen mir sehr gut. Die umwickelten zahlen sind super. Ich kann mir sehr gut vorstellen, dass man dabei fast die Krise bekommt.
Auch der "Schweizer Käse" macht sich gut, eine Inspiration für ähnliche Bastelarbeiten.
LG. Flo

This is so much fun! Your white crayon shows up fine against that beautiful ombré.
