EnTWINEd for Let's Craft and Create Challenge Blog on the 5th of November, 2021

For this month's challenge at Let's Craft and Create Challenge Blog we have the optional theme of

EnTWINEd (use twine)

So I searched through my stash to find something that I have not used before, but have wanted to use for ages and came up with this card:

I chose to use Knitting Marci and one of the kitties from Knit Happens which are part of the December 2020 Club La-La Land Crafts kit by the wonderful Irina at La-La Land Crafts
I have stamped the images on to X-Press It Blending Card and then coloured them with Copics before fussy cutting them out (I'm actually getting into fussy cutting now! Although give me a die anytime!!) 
I also used the the basket from the Club kit, I stamped the background using Sweater Weather and I stamped the sentiment on one of the Long Flags Die.

Here is another photo:

As I mentioned, I have coloured the images with the following Copics markers:
  • skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20, R30
  • hair - E21, E23, E25, E29
  • lips - R20, R22
  • pants/shoes - B91, B93, B95, B97
  • top - V01, V12, V15, V17
  • knitting - Y13, Y15, Y17, E15
  • kitty - C3, C5, C7, C9, R20
  • yarn - Y13, Y15, Y17
Here is Marci and the kitty after I fussy cut them out:

After I fussy cut, stamped the background on to a white square card from 
Envelope Solutions, then die cut the long flag from a pale blue cardstock, I stamped the sentiment using my MISTI and Nautical Blue Memento ink then I arranged everything on the card before I stuck it all down. 
For the twine - I tied some yellow and white paper cord that I found in my stash around the top of the card and tied it off!

As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Monthly Classes and Bonus Classes from the awesome Alyce at Kit and Clowder. I also drew some inspiration from the La-La Land Crafts Blog.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
