You Are Wonderful String Art

Oh My Gosh – string art technique is the newest craze.  I’ve seen it all over Pinterest and I just had to give it a shot.  It is so much fun — messy, but fun.  I had a blast seeing all the different images you get with a simple piece of Baker’s Twine.

String Art, Rooted in Nature, Techniques
The supplies are minimal — cardstock, Baker’s Twine, Ink Refill and then any embellishments you wish.  You dip the Baker’s Twine into a puddle of ink refill until the strip is all covered.  Next open an old book or catalog to center, lay Whisper White cardstock down, put tinted Baker’s Twine down in random pattern, lay another Whisper White cardstock over string, close book putting pressure on it and pull string out.  You can do this 2-3 times without putting more ink on the twine.

This card was the second pulling, which is my personal preference.  I stamped You Are Wonderful from Rooted in Nature and tied a small bow in center of 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and center across lower portion of card.
