You're Fabulous

Hello Everyone and thanks for stopping by,

Well it's the first Tuesday of the month and 
that means it's time to share my Craft-Dee BowZ project with you.

Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More 
                      is proud to sponsor the Craft-Dee BowZ challenge for April.

The top prize will win 3 digital stamps 

Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More
a division of I Did It Creations,
 was created and is owned by Robyn Weinrib. 
Robyn offers a wonderful variety of digital stamps and digital papers, designed to meet the needs of all digital paper crafting addicts for every occasion.
Click here and stop in at their shop and check out their wonderful selection of digi's

Let me show you you the digital image I used on my card.

Here is a pic of the image, colored but not trimmed yet.
I used colored pencils to add the color and Gamsol to blend the color out

I used the Lily image and added a duplicate but smaller image and then flipped the smaller image. That's the great thing about using digital images, you have a lot of flexibility.

Here is a closer view of those stamens

I didn't want my stamens to be black, so I covered the stamens using a Quickie Glue pen, and
then covered the glue with yellow embossing powder. (Yes you could use a VersaMark marker in place of the glue pen, but in the event you don't have the VersaMark marker, use a glue pen, it works just as well.) I then heated it just like regular embossing.

OK here is the finished card

I fussy cut the lilies and mounted them on a round shape that is off-set on the clock.
I used some of that yummy yellow sheer ribbon.
This card called for a double-loop bow and I decided the yellow sheer worked best with the colors of CS I used.

That bow was so easy to make using the Craft-Dee BowZ tool.

The tool will make a bow from 1" to 4 1/2". Perfect for all the different projects we make.
The tool is small and easy to store and is the best bow maker.
You can order yours here

The challenge over at Craft-Dee BowZ has started and lasts all month.
 The theme is always Anything Goes and include a Handmade Bow.
 I hope you will enter so you can be in the running for the top prize.
