Today it was my turn to be hostess for Splitcoaststampers MIX-Ability challenge. MIX279 is about Pulled String Art.
Here is how my experiment with gold, red and pink acrylic paint on black cardstock turned out. I used embroidery floss as the string.
This was pink gold, green and red acrylic paint on white cardstock.
I really like how the paint looks but wondered how else I could experiment. I tried string (embroidery floss) that I covered with versamark ink. I pulled the string and then covered the cardstock with embossing powder and heat embossed. Doesn't this look cool?
After I did the pulled string art, I used black stazon ink and
I stamped the cup onto the pulled string art. I had done the art on white cardstock and wanted it to go with the more vintage looking papers, so I used brown markers to dye the cup.
I added used tea bags, dyed cheesecloth, a tag with faux scrabble tiles, twine, quilled roses, pearl stick pins, and a little metal coffee cup charm
