Talking Twine

Here's my card for today's SCS clean and simple challenge to use twine.  I inked up  the sweet somewhat old-fashioned rotary phone image from Papertrey Ink's Heart-2-Heart #4 set and used some twine as a phone cord in this quick card.

The phone image was die cut from white cardstock, then stamped with the matching images in pink ink.  I used some brown ink to add the dial, then went back and filled in the open heart image at the center of the dial with the set's solid heart stamp using pink ink.  A piece of pink twine is attached to both pieces of the phone and looped a little just like a twisted phone cord.

The phone's set on a piece of patterned paper with a phone book print on it.  I inked the edges with some distress ink--it's less blotchy looking IRL than it is in the photo.  The set's "just wanted to say hello" sentiment is stamped just underneath the phone in a dark brown ink.  After setting the panel on a pink card base, I added a long kraft strip over the right side of the panel and accented it with a piece of knotted pink grosgrain ribbon.

Materials Used:
Heart-2-Heart #4 stamp set, Sweet Blush ink, Sweet Blush cardstock, Heart-2-Heart #4 die (Papertrey Ink); Crumb Cake and Whisper White cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Memento Rich Cocoa and Toffee Crunch inks (Tsukineko); Tea Dye distress ink (Ranger); Neopolitan Bean Bisque 6x6 paper pad (Jillibean Soup); pink baker's twine (Divine Twine); pink grosgrain ribbon (Morex); foam tape
