So glad you stopped in today. I am back with my post for Craft-Dee BowZ for March. This month the theme for the design team is Easter. I want to share with you an Easter card I made and the bow I added was made using my trusty Craft-Dee BowZ tool.
The background image is actually a pre-printed card about the size of a post card and it's from a set called Paintables. They come in a set of 16. I used a metallic paint set to color the image and decided to use a soft metallic green that compliments that bow color. I also used a soft bronze and a soft blue, again all the colors are soft metallics and look great with the metallic CS I used for the card base.
Here is a closer view of part of the printed card, painted.
Isn't this butterfly awesome. It too is from Prima. They have some of the prettiest embellishments.
Let's take a closer look at my bow. I made a double loop bow. This ribbon has wired edges and that's really my favorite type. I love the mint green ombre color on this ribbon, hope you do too.
My Craft-Dee BowZ tool is my go to tool for all my bows. Easy to use and stores easy and always at my finger tips. The best thing is the fact the that it lets you make different sizes and types of bows.
One last comment about this card - That filmy looking purple piece peeking out around some of the edges, is a used dryer sheet sprayed with Dylusions Ink Spray. I love the filmy, dreamy look it adds to your project. Save those sheets and use your sprays to color them. I pulled mine to stretch it out somewhat.
