Thank You!

Good Morning Trendy Twiners!!!!
Jessica here from Chick-n-Scrap wishing you all a very Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

I have a very special card to share today,made in honor of all the men and woman both past and present who fight for our country!

For my card I used the Totally White Trendy Twine (a MUST have in my opinion) and I showed you how by coloring 2 of the strands using my copic markers you can have any color twine to match your card perfectly!
Here is my card, I hope you like it....
I kept my card CAS to show you how twine can be used as a focal point as well as an embellishment for your projects. The image I used is a stamp from Peachy Keen Stamps that I colored using my copic markers. I did add some clear Wink of Stella to the white parts of the image, but unfortunately the picture doesn't show the sparkle.

Here is a closeup of my twine. I used 3 strands of the Totally White and then using my red copic and my blue copic markers, I colored the other strands. A perfect match to my image. After wrapping the strands around my white card stock mat and tying it in a bow, the mat was ready to be mounted onto my black card base. Once the bow was fluffed and situated exactly how I wanted it, I tied off the ends on a knot and trimmed the excess off.

Here are all the solid twine colors that are on sale this month! Check out the monthly spotlight section in the Trendy Twine store.

OH my gosh, what a great tip for us to color our Trendy Twine with markers---your cleverness never takes a vacation!! I also adore how you tied the twine in a loose knot toward the end of the strings--that looks SO good and I've never done that before!!! SO going to be doing that now on some of my cards!
