Sunday tied in Bows -

Sunday Magnolia vs. Stampavie Challenge! And this week we are all Bows!

"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 -
