The Stampavie Blog Challenge today is to create a project with some type of bow. Ribbon is my most favorite and frequently used embellishment.  I grew up in my mother’s flower shop and learning to use ribbon was a must in floral design. I use the same bow tying technique to create bows on a much smaller scale for my craft projects. I love knots, single loop and multi loop bows and I have recorded a series of ribbon tying tutorials  here on my blog to show how easy ribbon can be to work with.  Now is a good time take a look at the multi loop tutorial since Christmas is near.  You can learn to make any size bow, from tiny for a card to a massive bow for a wreath or package.  The technique is all the same.

I stamped the image on watercolor paper and painted with reinkers.  I painted the white fur on both the coats with white watercolor paint to make it stand out on the bright colors.  I sponged in the sky area and heat set.  I dotted the sky with white craft ink to create falling show and painted the ground area and then embossed with white embossing powder.  I added a fine layer of Flower Soft and then attached the frame with mounting tape.

I thought the BasicGrey designer paper was perfect for the background layer and the bright cranberry bow was the perfect embellishment to finish the project.
