Do the Twist

NOTE: I have two blog posts today, this one and the Crafty Gals Summer/Vacation card that is in the post immediately following it. I hope you'll check them both out.

It's TIME! Time for a new challenge at Twisted Tuesday! It seems like it's been f-o-r-e-v-e-r... since we had a two-week challenge the last time. Did you enjoy the Twisted Tuesday Vacation???

The new theme: A Touch of Purple

The Twist: Use baker's twine on your creation

* * *

I decided to do something a bit different with my card:

I took a piece f Crumb Cake cardstock and clear embossed the image onto it. I then used a dauber to dab Perfect Plum ink around the image, which, of course made the image show up better. I kind of like the way this technique worked.

And of course there's a little bit of baker's twine, as per the twist to this challenge.

The inside of my card is quite simple, but it seems appropriate for the type of card it is.

Now, let's see what you do with a Touch of Purple and Baker's Twine.

Image & Sentiment: Stampin' UP! Bella Blossom
Ink: Stampin' UP! Perfect Plum
Cardstock: Stampin' UP! Black, Crumb Cake, and Perfect Plum
Embellishment: A Muse French Roast Baker's Twine
