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:
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!
