Crazy for bows!


 Hello my friends!!  It's Saturday, and that means it's time for another Crazy 4 Challenges challenge.  The challenge this week is to use bows.  Well I've got that covered.  It just so happens that Flourishes just released a charming new stamp set, called That's a Wrap, that has a large bow stamp along with some embellishment and sentiment images!  Perfect!!
 



I stamped my bow onto Cryogen White cardstock twice, colored each with the W1 Copic, cut them out and layered them.  I wanted the bow to be a warm neutral color.  I then colored the holly and tag and added them.  I should also add that I burnished the backs of each image to give them depth.  I have a tutorial HERE.  

The box is just a standard box.  I made it 3" x 3", and decorated the sides with It's Christmas Time dp (Maja Design) that I purchased from The Funky Junkie.  I think this is my favorite Christmas dp this year.  Going along with the rustic feel of this box, I added a bit of Gesso to the paper and box.

Here's a close up of the top. 
 


Here are the links to the Copics I used.




Well, this is my last week as a guest designer with the Crazy 4 Challenges group.  They're a warm and talented bunch, and it's been an honor to accept their challenges for the month of September.  Thanks gals for letting me play along.

Thanks for visiting my friends!!
Happy Stamping!!
