Welcome to the second half of the Serendipity challenge where the theme all month is "twine". Play along by using a Serendipity stamp or die and add some twine. One entry will be chosen randomly and will win a sampler of Twinery Twine. New to playing with us? You can find all the details here on SSCB.

Get inspired using twine from the DT

For the first half of our challenge the DT was to use "hot" as their theme along with twine, now we are cooling things down! Anything "cool" is our focus and I'm thinking what's cooler than playing in the sprinkler on a hot summer day! Isn't this image dear? 

The sweet Sprinkler image has been colored with Copics.  A light brushing of Wink of Stella was added to the water spray. I've also added Gloss Gel to the splashes.

The lines were followed from the Exquisite Circle die cuts with twine to create the rays. I've also glued some twine around the circle die cut to frame the image and finished it off with a shoestring bow. "Summer" is from the season set, Spring~ Summer~ Autumn~ Winter.

Here are the Copics used!
