"Do anything from an atc, altered art project, handmade gift, card, tag etc. as long as it has Bows on, at least 1 bow that you have handmade. There is tons of ways you can change the look of bows, a flat bow , a big bouncy bow with lots of layers, simple little bow etc i think you get the drift now?"
I love big flowing bows, there are some blogs I visit where there bows just make me sit and stare at them trying to figure out how they make them so pretty! Me.. I do good to tie a knot most of the time. I really worked hard on this bow, and it still looks sad and flat to me, but it is technically a bow! I started by using one of the newer Magnolia images, don't you just love that these are larger? Colored with my Copics, I tried to use the same colors as one of my favorite pattern papers from K&Company. I have to really think hard when using this paper as I don't ever want to run out of this paper stack, called "Classic K". I used my new Martha Stewart small scalloped heart punch across the bottom of one of the patterns, then the gorgeous rose pattern, I found a darker piece in the stack and used it as mats behind the image and the wonderful sentiment, love this one from Rubber Stampede. I sewed everything down with either blanket stitches or straight stitches.
Now that bow... the ribbon is a Martha Stewart satin ribbon, tied over and over and over again until I settled on this one. And just because it had to have them, I stacked some Prima flowers, with jewelry spacers and mini brads.
I hope you will run over and check out all of the other DT work! There are some spectacular bows to see!
Me.. I am off to Sunday Breakfast, then home to make a cake for my nieces Birthday party - then off to the party then home to play with Libbie, Bonnie and Gato -
Hope you have a great Sunday -
