Well, it's Monday again (comes round quickly doesn't it?!) and time for a new challenge at Crafty Boots. This time Stephanie-Emma has chosen Bows. I die cut a Cabinet Card from mountboard and inked with lots of Distress Stains and Inks. I did it in about five layers to ensure that there was a real depth of colour, making pools of colour on my craft mat and dipping the card into it. I added a Studio 490 stamp over the top and it looked like this!
The cage was die cut from card and inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, highlighted with Black Soot Distress Ink and I sprayed a little Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls Mist in places. The bird is a Studio 490 stamp. I covered grungepaper with Beach Hut Fresco Finish Paint and stamped the bird in Jet Black Archival Ink - I stamped an extra wing for dimension! There's an ideaology crown at the top of the cage for balance.
The bow was laced through the cage and tied in the middle. The sentiment is from Studio 490 and was stamped on kraft card, cut into sections and the edged in Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The flowers and leaves are die cut from Core-Dinations card, sanded and edged in Vintage Photo again.
So, what will you make with a bow, or bows, on? I'm really looking forward to seeing your project! In the meantime, have a great week!
