Tying myself in knots!!

>> Monday, 19 January 2009

The theme for this weeks Magnolia vs. Stampavie challenge is 'Bows'. Perfect, I thought, I'll have a go at making a ribbon blossom following the tutorial I spotted at Splitcoast Stampers earlier in the week. Bev made a gorgeous one on her card but mine was an absolute disaster!! It just looked like a cat had got into my ribbon bag and created a knotted tangled mess. Maybe I should have posted a picture on here to give you all a good giggle but I'm really too embarrassed!

I'd kept the layout of my card simple as the bow was going to be the main feature but I settled on a simple bow with a charm instead. My Sarah Kay image is coloured with watercolour pencils, distress inks and H2O's, the paper is Karen Neuburger and the sentiment is from Hero Arts. I've used a sheet of the worded paper inside as well.

Beautiful Sharon with or without the disaster bow LOL! I fancied having a go at one of those too but perhaps I'll leave that for another day. I love your image and your colouring is superb. Beautiful papers, design and the bow with the little charm is perfect. Thanks so much for your lovely comment Sharon, it's so much appreciated. Have a good week. Chris x

Hi Sharon - absolutely gorgeous card - love it. You've coloured the image beautifully and it really 'pops' from the card.
This is the link I got from the Basic Grey challenge (lol) - pop over sometime and put the right link on.
