Knot it!

I pulled out my Ultimate Encyclopedia of Knots and Ropework by Geoffrey Budworth this morning. Check out what I did with this book and some linen cord I have from i {heart} papers;


I decided to make a man card inspired by this fabulous bookend on the My Sweet Muffin website, the inspiraiton challenge on Splitcoaststampers this weekend. I've used Documented by Simple Stories for the multiple browns as in the bookends. This sentiment is from Pretty Phrases by Paper Smooches and I've stamped it with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.


This knot is called the Vice Versa knot. Not bad at all! Have a great week!

stamps; pretty phrases (paper smooches from ihp)
paper; documented (simple stories  from ihp), java, kraft (bazzill)
ink; tuxedo black memento ink (tsukineko)
accessories; linen cord (canvas corps from ihp)

A book of knots? I need one of those because this is totally cool! Thanks for playing with us at Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges. :) Janis P.S. If you haven't already, you should consider entering this into my other challenge blog Paper Playtime #77 Anything Goes plus add a sentiment. This would be perfect. Okay off to search your blog for more knot cards. So cool.

You could make an eagle scout look bad with your knot knowledge. It's a great embellishnment for a masculine card. this card is great, I like the font for the sentiment, very different and fun.
thanks for sharing your great card with us at Pile It On.
