Grungy Monday TH Water Colour Image at Studio L3

 This is my first entry into this challenge... 
am  wee bit nervous :) but I want to move on and use different techniques... so here goes. 
I wonder if it's OK that I didn't use a TH stamp?
The twine was a natural colour until I pulled it through the Meadow ink pad... I got very messy 
Thanks to Hels Sheridan for that tip.
I think I may have over splattered... enjoyed it though!
I also cased one of TH designs :)
The base card is actually dark green...
it looks a bit black on ere. :o)

I've also entered this for the Gingersnaps Creations Challenge. TWINE

 Adirondack: Watermelon, Sunshine Yellow, Meadow.
Creative Expressions: British Wildflowers.

Well done for trying something new - it is good to keep moving. I really like the way this card has been made and the spatters are just right.

Blimey, I'm having a job to keep up with all this crafting that's appearing on here :)

Nice card, and I think the splattering looks just about right :) said...

It is lovely Suzi. I like the way you thread the charm onto the twine. Hels is full of fantastic tips, isn't she?
Thank you for your wonderful comment about the community pages, it was really sweet!

Suzi, it is almost impossible for me to leave comments today. I have just left one for you but it might come up as 'anonymous'. Anyway, it's from me.
