String theory

Kathy has set this week’s challenge over at Daring Cardmakers - we’re “all tied up” using string, twine, ribbon etc on our cards.

I went for perhaps a slightly left-field take on this one since I used string but it’s not there on the finished card, if you see what I mean! I’ve seen “string pull” art several times and finally got round to having a try.

You basically ink up some string, put it down on the page in a wiggly pattern, put another piece of paper on top, apply pressure and pull the string. Totally unpredictable but fun!

There are loads of video tutorials out there if you want to have a go and prefer to learn visually - this one is as good a start point as any, I reckon!
