Magnolia vs Stampavie Challenge - Bow tying skills

This weeks challenge is to test your bow tying skills. So, now that Pam has posted her Ribbon Blossom Tutorial on SCS I thought I would make one again (not done one of these for ages and love making them). I've used my favourite colour combo again, flowers, pearls, swirls and ribbon (no surprises there then!)
The inside with a simple sentiment

Recipe

Magnolia image coloured with distress inks and H2O's
Papers are K & Co
The doily is from the Ribbon Box
The swirls are cut with a Quickutz Revolution die
Flowers are a mix of Prima and from Crafts U Love
The ribbon is from Ribbon Oasis
The pearls are from Sally - what did I do before I got these lol.



Thanks for looking,

  1. Beautiful! Truly beautiful! Great colours.

    I love the doily, so pretty. The ribbon bow looks fab!

    So funny, I have the ribbon bow on my list of things to do asap! Was so happy to see she had posted the tutorial, have been waiting for ages for that. :)

  5. Hi, I've never poted a comment on here before but just felt I had to when I saw your wonderful bow!! Training as a florist over 20 years ago, possibly more?!, anyhow, I left the trade an awful long time ago but the one thing that I have never forgotton is how to make a bow, not just the one, but one for a bouquet, one for a funeral spray, one for a wreath....and the list goes on!! I try to be a bit more adventurous with my ribbons these days but occasionally slip one in, especially with Magnolia, she sometimes talks to me and tells me there is nothing more she would like but a beautiful satin bow to set off her beautiful layers of petticoat, or to match the bow in her hair!!
    I have an obssesion (spelling?!) with ribbon, my craft room should be re-named the ribbon room!! I think it goes back to my florist days! I have them hung behind my door in colour order and several ribbon boxes that I still need to put together for my reels....given the choice between chocolate and ribbon, ribbon would win hands down!!
    Great prize, I have a couple of Messy Rabbit's and they are just soooo cute!!!

    Love H x
