Hi there
Glad you see you.

Today is the beginning of a new month 
and that means it's time for a new challenge over at Craft-Dee BowZ. 

I decided to use some flowers stamps from a new stamp set I recently picked up.
I wasn't sure how I was going to color everything and I finally decided to stamp on some Gelli Plate papers that I worked up and saved a while back.

Lets take a peek at the finished card

I had some green design papers so those were perfect for the leaves and the multi color papers were just what I wanted for the blooms. Then I decided to use more gelli plate papers for my layered panels bringing all the colors together.

Let me show you a closer pic of those flowers

I was really happy with the way the flowers turned out.

My bow is a 4 loop bow. I know - 4 loops, but I used Hug Snug, seam binding and since it is a thinner product a 4 loop bow is easy to make. The seam binding  started out as white  and I decided to dye it. Well I used Eggplant but it was too blue -ish so I rinsed it in the faucet. After patting it dry there was some blue left in the ribbon but I went ahead and sprayed it with Open Arms Amethyst and it matched that purple gelli plate panel. What a perfect mistake that turned out to be.
You know, the Crafty-Dee BowZ bow maker tool is what I use for all my bows. It is the best tool for all your bow making needs. Don't own one? Well click here to order one for yourself.
