No, it's not a spelling mistake, I do mean 'knotty' and not 'naughty'!
The challenge this fortnight over at Anything But a Card is TIE IT UP! (incorporate things that can be tied: twine, ribbon, thread, wire, rope, cording, trim, chain, seam binding, etc).
What immediately sprung to mind for me was Macrame, all the rage in the 70's, when every trendy household had a hanging plant pot holder! However, that being several decades ago, I couldn't remember how to do the knots so I had to to look it up on the web. I've gone for the simplest knot and made a wee keyring using black cord and some wooden beads...
Also big in the 70's was stitched art. I can remember my mother chapping in hundreds of nails and wrapping round fancy threads to make fabulous creations - she may even still have them in the loft - I particularly remember she did a penny farthing!!
Anyways, whilst I was in a retro mood, I decided to make a stitched card.
I simply printed out a heart shape and punched holes with a needle. I used 3 strands of DMC thread and added some beads.
This card fits the challenges over at ...
