Twine for Alphabet Challenge

Its time for another letter in the Alphabet and this time it's 'T' and Team B's turn and Mari has chosen 'Twine'

I decided to make my own twine from 2 bits of frayed burlap, I died one piece with Aged Mahogany and then when dry, twisted them together, now what to do with them.
A short while ago the lovely Ignacio of Nicecrane Designs very kindly gave me some Mark Twain images to 'play with',  and when I saw this sentiment (Peerless Designs) at the weekend, I knew how I was going to use it.   My image is coloured with Distress Markers and inks. The corrugated cardboard gave a lovely surprise when I started to rip it and found it was double core, so apart from a light distressing with some Tumbled ~Glass DI, that was it.
I would be lovely to see you join us, and if you need any inspiration for using Twine, them please pop over to the main blog, as my very clever teamies have some lovely creations to show.

I am entering this at:

That's it for now, hope you all have a lovely weekend, whatever you're doing.

Your card board background is wonderful - looks like rusted tin and your homemade twin hits the spot. It looks like old timey twine really perfect for Huckleberry Fin.
Wonderful make Avril!

This is so beautiful, Avril! Love the peaceful feel of this scene and you found the perfect sentiment to use with it! Your own made twine and corrugated cardboard looks like elements found in nature, which suits this design so well.
