I have a small troop of monkeys having some fun on my card today, swinging and dangling from vines made from twine....
To make the vines I have used green hemp twine from my stash and coated it with Multi Matte Medium glue which helps you to train the twine into the curves and shapes you want. I adhered the loops of twine to the card with the same glue. To make green vines you can easily colour natural coloured hemp twine with ink or paint and leave it to dry thoroughly before using.
To make the leaves, I stamped out the vine from Swinging borders onto Kraft card and coloured the leaves with Polychrome pencils as well. Yes I did cut out all those leaves, not as fiddly as you'd think and they are quite simple shapes too.
It was fun building the scene, adding the monkeys and leaves to the vines using a combination of foam dimensionals and glue. I then layered the panel onto another piece of kraft card with a narrow border and then onto a cream card base.
