PTI MIM #255: String Art Using Die-Cuts

This week's Make It Monday Challenge on Nichole's blog was instigated by Amy, and she shared some gorgeous examples using string art accents and focal points using die-cuts. Her video was very detailed and easy to understand. I should have just copied her using the same die-cuts, but I opted to figure out my own.



Modern Background Stencil in Simply Chartreuse on my white card base is the backdrop for my focal image. I wrapped old SU green/white twine up and down the spiral notebook die for my string art. Leaves and blooms are from Color Pops Floral in Melon Berry and Canyon Clay. Sentiments in Simply Chartreuse and splattered all three ink colors in the white space. Added a little Shimmer Wink of Stella to the flower centers, then a piece of striped paper to the bottom before adhering to Canyon Clay. Off to see what other fabulous ideas are out there.
