Tie One On

G'Day from the Dingo

Here is my entry for Feeling Sketchy's 100th Sketch Challenge. 
Congratulations to all of you on a very fine site.

You would not believe the amount of time it took me to put this together. Either I'm getting old or the challenges are getting more, well, challenging.

I opted for a sort of urban masculine style using a subtle embossed background with some mesh and a few matted up differently coloured ties. 

The flourish in the sketch turned into the twine swirl and bow which reminds me of the washing line and everything getting tangled up in the wind. Finished it off with a few brads and the sentiment (which I'm sure the boys would like.)

Here is the sketch
