Unravelling ...


This chair digi stamp from Whimsie Doodles is one of my favorite 'go to' images at the moment.  There are so many great sentiments that can go with it.  And of course, the Really Reasonable Ribbon Baker's Twine is wonderful and comes in so many colors.

I made the knitting needles out of toothpicks sponged with silver paint, with silver beads on the ends, and knitted a few rows with the Baker's Twine.  The chair was printed and folded in half, then cut out with an Xacto knife.  (The fold is on the top line of the card.)  Then came the stamping and coloring of the legs with black marker.  I love the way it stands up, don't you?  This is the sentiment printed inside:
It was fun to make and not half as complicated as it looks either.
