Hammock Parts

It's my day to host the WTUI challenge on SCS.  Have you played with us yet??? Why not?!  I'm challenging you to use your hammock parts - rope, yarn, string or twine, but NO ribbon.  Well, you KNOW I had to pull out some yarn and crochet something.
Here is attempt # 1:

It's a star ornament.
It wasn't quite pointy-enough, so I tried again:

In the end, I went with my first attempt:

I used the chevron stencil from MFT with my Copic airbrush system.  I did use 3 different markers, but on the kraft card (by Canvas Corp, btw), it doesn't look any different.  Oh well, I was stuck on the blue gradient look, so I guess this forced me to snap out of it.  I cut out a star with my Framelits, and added a bit of washi tape (of course).
Since this was also for Katlyn's VSN Challenge, I was out of time to do anything with the inside.  I just secured the star ornament with some washi tape:

I thought some folks might not want to play along, thinking they needed to crochet something, so I made another sample:

I kind-of used Jennifer McGuire's Distress Ink Bleed technique.  The first time I made it very sketchy, but I decided I wanted it more defined, so I did it again.  And that, my friends, is why there are two sides to every piece of paper!  The stamp is by Tim Holtz and a very fun set.  I was stuck on what to do next, so I went to the Sketch Challenge.  That's where I always find inspiration when I'm stuck on what to do next.  Last week's sketch was just perfect!  I added a torn piece of paper, 3 colors of twine by The Twinery, and a sentiment.  The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday, and I stamped it in VersaMark and embossed it in silver.  I cut it out with an MFT Die-Namics.  This will be a graduation card for a neighbor kid, which satisfies Brenda's VSN Challenge.
I've given you links to 4 different challenges and a technique.  Hopefully, you are inspired to go create on your own!
